A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY OF OUR 
GRAND MASTER 

John Alfred Irvine was bom on January 26, 
1912, on Wolfe Island, Ontario, the largest of the 
Thousand Islands. His parents, of U.E.L. descent 
and Irish extraction were Byron and Rachella Irvine. 
He was brought up on a typical hundred acre farm, 
devoted to mixed farming, which stood on the bank 
of the St. Lawrence River where it leaves Lake 
Ontario. He secured his primary education in a one 
room white frame school house, S.S. No. 14, Wolfe 
Island. 

Acquiring a secondary education was a difficult 
problem for the young farm boy. Leaving home at 
the age of thirteen, he sailed as a deck hand, and 
ultimately as an able-bodied seaman, on the Great 
Lakes and Atlantic coastal waters, travelling as far 
as Jamaica, Florida and Newfoundland. In between 
times, while not sailing, he acquired his high school 
education, which included matidculation and the 
commercial course at Kingston Collegiate, finishing 
in 1930. 

With high school finished, John Irvine believed 
that his greatest interest was in acquiring a univers- 
ity education, and he enrolled at Queen's University, 
where he passed the first year in Arts. In the mean- 
time he felt that there was a greater opportunity in 
sales work. He joined the Hoover Company, starting 
out as a door to door salesman. Knowing the Grand 
Master as we do, we cannot be surprised that this 
position, within a year, had developed to the manage- 
ment of an area of Toronto, and within six years to 
that of District Manager, the youngest in the Com- 
pany, with headquarters in London. In this position 
he held responsibility for the whole of Southwestern 
Ontario. 

In 1939 he volunteered for the Canadian Army 
but was given a temporary category owing to a left 
arm injury. He joined the militia, however, and 
was released on many occasions by his company to 



carry out instructional duties. He was placed on the 
reserve list of officers in 1945 with the confirmed 
rank of Captain. 

In 1947 he resigned from the Hoover Company 
and went into business for himself, in London, 
having already been established for two years with 
his brother in a firm in St. Thomas. He operated 
his London business under the style of Irvine Ap- 
pliances, a sole proprietorship, until his retirement 
in 1961. During this period he was interested in 
other businesses, including construction, restaurant 
and real estate firms. He was an active member of 
the North London Kiwanis Club. 

That our Grand Master has devoted much 
thought and energy to public life in all levels from 
municipal to national, the following table attests : 

1953-55 — President, Ratepayers' Association 

of Lambeth. 
1955-57 — President, North London Merchants' 

Association. 
1957-60 — Member of City of London Traffic 

Committee. 
1960-63 — Alderman, City of London. 
1963- — Member of Parliament for London 

in the House of Commons. 

As one would expect, our Grand Master's career 
has been active and full. Again a table provides the 
best way to tell the story: 

1941 — Initiated, June 6, St. John's Lodge, 
No. 209a, London. 

1950 — Elected Wor. Master. 

1955 — Elected Grand Senior Warden, G.L.C. 

1958 — Elected to the Board of General Pur- 
poses. 

1960 — Re-elected to the Board. 

1961 — Elected Deputy Grand Master. 
1963 — Elected Grand Master. 

In addition to the foregoing, our Grand Master 
is also a life member of St. John's Chapter, No. 4, 



R.A.M; Richard Coeur de Leon Preceptory, No. 3; 
The London Lodge of Perfection, A. & A.S. Rite of 
which he was Thrice Puissant Grand Master in 1959 ; 
London Sovereign Chapter, Rose Croix ; Moore Sov- 
ereign Consistory; and Ancient and Arabic Order 
Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, at present holding the 
office of Chief Rabban. 

In September, 1963, he was coroneted an Hon- 
orary Inspector General, 33°, of the Ancient and 
Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, for the 
Dominion of Canada. 

John Irvine married Doris Virginia Seeley of 
Owen Sound, on July 3, 1937. They have one son, 
John, aged 21. The Irvine family lives at 34 Camp- 
bell Street, Lambeth. They support Trinity Anglican 
Church, of which our Grand Master has been a 
member of the Board of Management for several 
years. 

Our Grand Master states that his hobbies are 
fishing, where he uses the term "ardent", and golf- 
ing and curling, where he limits himself to the word 
"ordinary".

TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 41 

GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

To the Officers and Members of the Most Worshipful 
the Grand Lodge, A. F. & A. M. of Canada in the 
Province of Ontario. 

My Brethren: 

Once again it is my privilege to welcome you to 
this Annual Communication of our Grand Lodge and 
to render an account of my stewardship as your 
Grand Master. Tomorrow I will surrender the gav- 
el of that High Office to my successor and it will be 
with the earnest hope that he will find his experience 
as richly rewarding as mine has been. Believe me, 
Brethren, I have appreciated, more than I can ade- 
quately express, the great honor and privilege of 
having been allowed to serve for two years as your 
Grand Master. I have been quite conscious of my 
limitations and realize I may have made some mis- 
takes but I can say, in all sincerity, that I have done 
my best and I dare to entertain the hope that I may 
have made some worthwhile contribution to our be- 
loved Fraternity. 

You have, of course, noticed we are meeting in 
new quarters, the Cedarbrae Secondary School in 
Scarborough Township in Metropolitan Toronto. 
The change was made after careful consideration and 
in consultation with the appropriate Committees of 
the Toronto Districts. We believe you will find the 
accommodation and facilities more satisfactory. 
We should acknowledge, with gratitude, our debt of 
appreciation to the Chairmen and members of the 
various Committees in the Toronto area who have 
made the necessary arrangements for our meeting. 
There is a tremendous amount of detail involved in 
arranging for our accommodation and the facilities 
for the effective carrying on of our duties. 

I have great pleasure in welcoming many dis- 
tinguished leaders and Grand Lodge Officers from 
other Grand Jurisdictions, both of Canada and the 



42 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

United States of America. Many of them have 
been accompanied to Toronto by their ladies and we 
hope they will enjoy the social events provided for 
their entertainment. I hope we can find time to 
receive a word of greeting from some or all of these 
guests. I must take time to say that I have, per- 
sonally, been most graciously entertained in many 
of the Jurisdictions represented here today and my 
life has been enriched by many new friendships thus 
formed. 

NECROLOGY 

Since our last Annual Communication, I record, 
with saddened heart, the passing of three stalwart 
Masons, two of whom have served this Grand Lodge 
for many years and one who will be remembered 
throughout the Masonic World for his great contri- 
butions to our Fraternity as Chief Executive Officer 
of English Freemasonry. 

We now record the following in grateful tribute 
to their memory realizing, as we all must, that simple 
fact that no man can know another completely. 

SIR ERNEST HERBERT COOPER 

Sir Ernest was a native son of Ontario, having 
been born in Clinton, Ontario, on June 10, 1877. 
Shortly after graduating at the University of 
Toronto in 1900, he became associated with what 
later became known as Gillette Industries Limited in 
London, England and when he retired from this firm 
in 1958 he was Chairman of its Board. He served 
with the 198th Canadian Buffs in the First World 
War and, after accomplishing many assigned tasks 
of administration in the Second World War, he was 
appointed Industrial Adviser to the Government of 
Northern Ireland, later becoming Director of Inform- 
ation Services for Northern Ireland in London until 
1946. For his services he was created by His 
Majesty King George VI a Knight Bachelor in 1944. 

He always maintained a great interest in Can- 
adian affairs, serving on committees of the Canadian 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 43 

Red Cross and of the Canadian Y. M. C. A. under 
whose auspices the "Beaver Club" was established 
in London as a "home away from home" for Can- 
adian Forces during World War II. 

But it was in Freemasonry that we knew him 
best. In the Masonic World it is true to say that, 
as President of the Board of the United Grand Lodge 
of England for thirteen years, he gained world wide 
recognition as a leader and counsellor. He w r as 
initiated in Canada Lodge, No. 3527, London, in the 
formative years of the Lodge, was its first initiate 
to serve as Master and later served as its Secretary 
for many years. In 1940, our Grand Lodge, in rec- 
ognition of his services, conferred upon him the Hon- 
orary Rank of a R. W. Past Grand Registrar. His 
friendship for us has been deeply appreciated and 
we will always remain thankful for it. 

JAMES WATTS HAMILTON 

On November 14, 1962, R. W. Bro. James Watts 
Hamilton passed to Grand Lodge Above after a 
lengthy illness. He was born in St. Mary's, Ontario, 
but since 1893 he had lived in Hamilton where he 
contributed much to the growth and development of 
the City. He was a member of the Hamilton Play- 
grounds Commission from 1937 to 1946, serving as 
its Chairman in 1942. For nine years he was a 
school trustee, becoming Chairman of the Board of 
Education in 1945. He was a past member of the 
Rotary Club and the Optimist Club, a member of the 
Hamilton Police Amateur Athletic Club, the Hamil- 
ton Olympic Club and the 91st Amateur Athletic 
Association, acting as timer at track meets in the 
City and district. 

A life long member of Central Presbyterian 
Church, Hamilton, he served on the Board of Man- 
agement for many years and was a past Chairman 
of that Board. At the time of his death he was 
the senior elder of the Church. 



44 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

He was initiated into Masonry on March 6, 1908, 
in The Barton Lodgie, No. 6, Hamilton, of which he 
became a life member in 1908. In 1924 he served 
as its Master and in 1934 he was appointed Assistant 
Grand Secretary. In 1939 he was appointed Chair- 
man of the Committee on Credentials of Grand 
Lodge, which position he held until his death. For his 
long- and faithful services to the Craft he was ap- 
pointed an Honorary Past Grand Senior Warden in 
1959. He was also a Past President of the Hamil- 
ton Past Masters' Association. In 1958 he was 
awarded the Veteran's Jubilee Medal in recognition 
of fifty years membership in the Craft. He was 
also a life member of Washington Lodge, A.F.&A.M., 
Buffalo. 

In other branches of Masonry he was active. 
He was a member of the Murton Lodge of Perfection, 
the Hamilton Chapter of Rose Croix and Moore Sov- 
ereign Consistory, Ancient and Accepted Scottish 
Rite. In 1942 he was coroneted an Honorary In- 
spector General 33°. He was also a member of the 
Royal Order of Scotland, Rameses Temple of the 
Shrine and Hamilton Chapter, No. 175, Royal Arch 
Masons. 

Interment was in Woodland Cemetery, Hamil- 
ton, on November 16th following service in Central 
Presbyterian Church. Left to mourn are his wife, 
four daughters, all married, and several grand- 
children. 

EDWARD T. HOWE 

R. W. Bro. Edward T. Howe was born in Am- 
herstburg, Ontario, in 1878 and passed away on 
September 20, 1962, at the age of 84. He was edu- 
cated in Amherstburg and Essex schools and also 
attended Detroit Business College. 

He was one who gave much of his life to service 
to his community. In 1911 he was elected to the 
Windsor Board of Education and in 1920 he was 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1963 45 

Chairman of that Board. In 1921 he was appointed 
Director of School Attendance which office he held 
with distinction until his retirement in 1952. He 
was a charter member and fifth President of the 
Optimist Club, prominent in the Goodfellows' Club, 
the Children's Aid Society and the Canadian Red 
Cross. He served as a member of the Border Cities 
Utility Commission when Metropolitan Hospital was 
built. 

He was a staunch churchman, serving as an 
elder of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Windsor, 
for many years. 

In Masonry he restricted his endeavours to the 
Craft. He was initiated in Windsor Lodge, No. 408, 
on February 11, 1910, becoming a life member of 
that lodge in 1935. In 1918 he served the lodge as 
Master. He was a charter and life member of Bor- 
der Cities Lodge, No. 554, serving for many years as 
its Secretary. He was also a member of St. An- 
drew's Lodge, No. 642. In 1925 he was elected 
D.D.G.M. of Windsor District and in 1933 he was 
appointed a member of the Board of General Purpos- 
es of Grand Lodge continuing as a member until his 
death, first as an active member to 1943 and there- 
after as an honorary member, serving so well and 
conscientiously as a member of the Committee on 
Benevolence. In 1960, in recognition of fifty years of 
service to the Craft, he was awarded our Veteran's 
Jubilee Medal. 

A Masonic Service was held on Sunday, Septem- 
ber 23rd, and on Monday, September 24th. he was 
laid to rest in Victoria Memorial Cemetery, Windsor. 

Left to mourn him are two sons, one brother 
and seven grandchildren. His wife predeceased 
him in 1955. 

To close the eye, to fall asleep, 
To draw a laboured breath, 
To find release from daily chores 
Is what we know as death.

TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1 47 

the Craft. It was my great privilege to be able to 
attend each of these celebrations and to bring greet- 
ings and congratulations from Grand Lodge. 

(a) Norfolk Lodge, No. 10, Simcoe, one of our oldest 
lodges and the lodge of our First Grand Master, 
celebrated its 150th Anniversary on October 
17, 1962. 

(b) Peterborough Lodge, No. 155, Peterborough, 
celebrated its 100th Anniversary on April 6,

PAST RANK 

(a) Owing to illness Wor. Bro. N. H. R. Brown Dis- 
trict Deputy Grand Master-elect of Toronto District 



48 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

"6" was unable to be present in Grand Lodge for 
installation. M. W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn, P.G.M., 
at my request, kindly installed and invested R. W. 
Bro. N. H. R. Brown as D.D.G.M., the ceremonies 
taking- place on September 11, 1962, in Delta Lodge, 
No. 634. I recommend that he be given past rank. 

(b) Wor. Bro. K. M. Laushway was installed as Mas- 
ter of Central Lodge, No. 110, and served well until 
his death on June 10, 1962, some months short of 
the prescribed time. I recommend that he be given 
past rank, posthumously. 

(c) Owing to a change in the Bylaws of Robertson 
Lodge, No. 292, Wor. Bro. Fred G. Hare served as 
Master seventeen days short of the prescribed time. 
I recommend that he be given past rank. 

(d) Wor. Bro. John E. Smith was installed as Master 
of St. George Lodge, No. 367, on December 1, 1961, 
and died on June 8, 1962. He was very attentive 
to his duties as Master. At the request of the 
Lodge, I recommend that he be given the rank of 
Past Master, posthumously. 

(e) Wor. Bro. William Fairclough was unable to 
attend for installation as Master of Canada Lodge, 
No. 532, until March 2, 1962. He, therefore, served 
two months short of the prescribed twelve months. 
I recommend that he be given past rank. 

(f) Owig to a change in the Bylaws of Ulster 
Lodge, No. 537, Wor. Bro. George W. Kerr served 
seven days less than the prescribed twelve months. 
I recommend that he be given past rank. 

(g) Maple Lodge, No. 600, amended its Bylaws and 
by so doing Wor. Bro. E. P. Bruce served only eleven 
months as Worshipful Master. I recommend that 
he be given past rank. 

(h) Owing to his untimely death on November 9, 
1962, Wor. Bro. A. J. Pelley was unable to serve his 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 49 

full term as Worshipful Master of Long Branch 
Lodge, No. 632. I recommend that he be given the 
rank of Past Master, posthumously. 

(i) Owing to a change in the date of installation, 
Wor. Bro. Hugh Gourley served as Master of Tod- 
morden Lodge, No. 647, one week short of the pre- 
scribed twelve months. I recommend that he be 
given past rank. 

(j) Joseph A. Hearn Lodge, No. 685, by amend- 
ment to its Bylaws, changed the date of its installa- 
tion. As a result Wor. Bro. Alan Grant MacDonald 
served one week short of the prescribed twelve 
months. I recommend that he be given past rank. 

(k) Shortly after Wor. Bro. John Chatel was in- 
stalled as Master of Dufferin Lodge, No. 570, he was 
stricken with a fatal illness. He had served the 
lodge well as Warden. I recommend that he be 
given past rank, posthumously. 

RECOGNITION OF GRAND SECRETARY 

As I have visited other Grand Jurisdictions 
during my term of office I have noted with pleasure 
the honor and esteem in which R. W. Bro. Dixon is 
held throughout the whole Masonic Fraternity on 
this continent and, indeed, in the Grand Lodge of 
England. He has been honored by the presentation 
to him of medals and other tokens of appreciation 
by many Grand Jurisdictions. He has been the 
Grand Secretary of our Grand Lodge since 1937 and 
is recognized as an outstanding authority on Masonic 
Law and Procedure. There is no doubt that, if he 
had been willing to stand for election, he would have 
been Grand Master long ago. I feel it is time we 
suitably recognized his services and I recommend 
that he be given the rank of Past Grand Master 
(Honorary) 

APPOINTMENT TO THE BOARD 

There is a vacancy in the Honorary Membership 
of The Board of General Purposes. R. W. Bro. 



50 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

George T. Evans has served for many years as Chair- 
man of the Advisory Committee on Lodge Buildings. 
He has devoted many hours of his time and has 
freely given of his experience and advice to lodge 
building committees who were contemplating new 
buildings or extensive alterations to lodge premises. 
These services, which are highly technical, are most 
invaluable and have, of course, been entirely volun- 
tary. I recommend that he be made an Honorary 
Member of the Board in recognition of these services 
and in the hope that R. W. Bro. Evans may long be 
able to continue this contribution to our Grand 
Lodge. 

HONORARY RANK 

We do not often confer honorary rank in our 
Grand Lodge. In 1959, however, the very faithful 
services rendered by the late R. W. Bros. Ernest B. 
Thompson and the late James W. Hamilton, as Chair- 
man of the Scrutineers and Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Credentials, respectively, were recognized 
when the honorary rank of Past Grand Senior War- 
den was conferred on each of them. Since 1959 
V. W. Bro. Robert Strachan has been Chairman of 
the Committee of Scrutineers. I am sure we are 
all aware of the very valuable contribution he has 
thus made and is still making in carrying out the 
arduous duties of that office. V. W. Bro. Strachan 
is a Past Master of St. Andrew's Lodge, No. 593, and 
Past Assistant Grand Secretary. I recommend that 
the rank of Honorary Past Grand Senior Warden be 
conferred upon him.

During the year I have authorized donations 
from our General Fund in the following amounts : 

St. John Ambulance Corps. 

(Ontario Council) $500.00 

Salvation Army (Ontario Branch) $500.00

ruary 13, 1963, by R. W. Bro. A. I. McFarlane, 
D.D.G.M. Algiama District. 

LODGES CONSTITUTED AND CONSECRATED 

Three new lodges have been constituted and 
consecrated during this last year. I appreciate the 
assistance of M. W. Bro. Pitts and M. W. Bro. Hearn 
in the ceremonies of constituting and consecrating. 
We extend our congratulations and best wishes to 
these lodges which are: 

(a) Eastern Lodge, No. 707, Cornwall, on Septem- 
ber 20, 1962, by M. W. Bro. C. M. Pitts, Past 
Grand Master.

52 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

LODGE ROOMS DEDICATED 

The lodge rooms of the following- lodges have 
been dedicated during the year. 

(a) Prince Arthur Lodge, No. 334, Arthur, on the 
10th of June, 1963, by the Grand Master. 

(b) Harriston Lodge, No. 262, Harriston, on the 
14th of June, 1963, by the Grand Master. 

Both of these lodge rooms are in splendid new 
Masonic Temples which are, in every sense of the 
word, a credit to Freemasonry. The officers and 
members of Prince Arthur Lodge and Harriston 
Lodge are to be congratulated for their zeal and de- 
votion in these undertakings. 

VISITATIONS TO OTHER GRAND 
LODGES AND MASONIC BODD3S 

Many invitations are received each year to at- 
tend the Annual Communication of other Grand 
Lodges and Masonic Bodies. It is, of course, a 
pleasure to accept these when possible but it is not 
always possible. The Past Grand Masters and Sen- 
ior Grand Lodge Officers have been very gracious in 
acceding to my request to represent me when I 
could not personally attend. 

The following is a list of such visitations made 
by your Grand Master or other appointed represen- 
tative.

I am sure we are all pleased to note that, while 
in attendance at the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia a 
year ago, M. W. Bro. C. M. Pitts was honored by that 
Grand Lodge when it conferred on him the honorary 
rank of Past Grand Master. Similarly, I am deeply 
grateful for the honor conferred upon me by Grand 
Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the 
Province of Ontario when I was granted the honor- 
ary rank of Past First Principal on April 23, 1963. 
My thanks to M. Ex. Comp. Charles W. Emmett, 
Grand First Principal and his Officers. 

VISITATIONS WITHIN OUR OWN 
JURISDICTION 

I will not take the time to report in detail the 
meetings which I have attended in our own Juris- 
diction. The invitations to District Receptions and 
special lodge occasions and anniversaries have been 
many and very gracious. I could not accept them 
all but have accepted those that time and strength 
would permit. During my two years as Grand 
Master I believe I have attended some Masonic func- 
tion in every District within our Jurisdiction. The 
large numbers of brethren in attendance, the 
warmth of the welcome accorded me and the kind 
words of appreciation so generously expressed were, 
indeed, heart warming and stimulating. The many 
personal gifts presented to Mrs. Treleaven and to me 
will remind me for the rest of my life of the great 
kindness of my brother Masons. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 55 

SPECIAL OCCASIONS 

On December 19, 1962, the Grand Secretary and 
R. W. Bro. George J. McQueen attended the Instal- 
lation of the officers of Granite Lodge, No. 352, 
Parry Sound, particularly to represent Grand Lodge 
and me because it was the occasion for great joy 
when R. W. Bro. Adam Brown, P.D.D.G.M., who had 
attained the 100th anniversary of his birth two days 
before, was honored and participated in the Instal- 
lation Ceremony. I was so pleased to meet R. W. 
Bro. Brown in Sundridge on May 1st, 1963, at the 
reception tendered to me by Muskoka - Parry Sound 
District. His service to Masonry has been long 
and zealous. 

In May, last year, when I attended Kilwinning 
Lodge, No. 565, Toronto, I met Bro. Thomas Ross, 
then in his 101st year. He is now in his 102nd 
year and will, on December 25th of this year, cele- 
brate his 102nd anniversary. 

To each of these centenarians I extend my heart- 
iest congratulations and I am sure you would want 
me to extend to them on your behalf greetings and 
best wishes from this Grand Lodge. This I will be 
pleased to do. 

RE QUATUOR CORONATI LODGE NO. 2076 
G. R. E. 

This Lodge is the oldest and best known Re- 
search Lodge in the world. It is exclusively a 
Lodge of Research and its annual publication con- 
tains all the papers read during the current year. 
It operates through local Secretaries in all Masonic 
Jurisdictions both in England and throughout the 
world. Bro. John E. Taylor has been secretary for 
Ontario since 1952. 

He made application to me, as Grand Master, 
for permission to circularize the Lodge Secretaries 
for the purpose of increasing the circle membership. 



56 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Recognizing the high standing and vahiable contri- 
bution of this Lodge to world-wide Masonry, permis- 
sion was given. 

CANADIAN CONFERENCE 

The Eighth Biennial Conference of Canadian 
Grand and District Grand Lodges was held in Win- 
nipeg, February 14th, 15th and 16th this vear. M. 
W. Bro. C. M. Pitts, R. W. Bro. J. A. Irvine, 
R. W. Bro. E. G. Dixon and I were privileged to be 
present to represent this Grand Lodge. AH the 
Canadian Grand Lodges, except one, were repre- 
sented. The discussion of the various topics 
brought forward for consideration was very timely 
and helpful. The Conference learned of a pro- 
posed television broadcast to be presented by the 
C.B.C. and to consist of two one-half hour presenta- 
tions of some features of Freemasonry in Canada. 
The members of the Conference were unanimously 
opposed to any such presentation as they felt the 
outline of the program did not present a true re- 
presentation of Freemasonry. A strong resolution 
was passed opposing the idea and apparently it has 
been dropped. 

GRAND MASTERS' AND GRAND SECRETARIES' 
CONFERENCES IN WASHINGTON 

One of the privileges, as well as one of the re- 
sponsibilities of the Grand Master, is to attend the 
concurrent but separate Conferences of the Grand 
Masters and Grand Secretaries of the Grand Lodges 
of Masons on this North American Continent. These 
Conferences were held this year in Washington on 
February 20th and 21st. This Grand Lodge was 
represented by myself as Grand Master, M. W. Bro. 
Harry L. Martyn, R. W. Bro. J. A. Irvine, Deputy 
Grand Master, and R. W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, Grand 
Secretary. While these Conferences have no leg- 
islative authority they are of real inspiration and 
help to those who attend as discussion and consulta- 
tion take place on the various problems confronting 1 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 57 

our Fraternity at large. M. W. Bro. Martyn made 
a fine contribution to the effectiveness of the Con- 
ference by his work on the Commission on Inform- 
ation for Recognition, of which he was Chairman, 
and by his comprehensive report. This Conference 
has always been held in Washington but it has been 
decided to hold the next one in Kansas City, 
Missouri, next February. 

BADGES, BUTTONS OR OTHER 
IDENTIFICATION OF MEMBERS 

It has been brought to my attention and, in fact, 
I have personally noticed a tendency in some lodges 
to drift toward informality in lodge meetings. Some 
lodges are using buttons or identification cards sim- 
ilar to those used almost universally in service clubs. 
Occasionally one hears a Mason addressed in lodge 
or in the banquet room by his given name as "Bro. 
Bill" or "Bro. George," etc. The motive behind this 
trend is, no doubt, a worthy one but I am satisfied 
the end result will not be good. It will have a 
tendency to cheapen Freemasonry. There is a vast 
difference between service clubs or other organiz- 
ations having merely social or service objectives and 
our Masonic lodges. The service clubs have their 
place and, no doubt, fill a worthwhile need, but Free- 
masonry contains a deep philosophy of life. , Its 
teachings are moral and spiritual and the traditions 
of our lodge meetings call for dignity always and 
often for reverence. 

I am not prepared to say identification badges 
may never be used. I would prefer, if they are used, 
they should only be used in the banquet room but. 
if used, they should identify the member in a digni- 
fied way by his Masonic rank and his surname. 

RE VETERAN JUBILEE AND OTHER MEDALS 

It has been brought to my attention that 
Veteran Jubilee and other medals, pins and bars, 
presented to our members, can be worn in lodge or 



58 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

at Masonic assemblies only. Last year over 420 
Veteran Jubilee Medals were issued and 18 Long 
Service Medals (50 years a Past Master). The vast 
majority of the recipients, because of their advanced 
years, seldom attend lodge and have practically no 
opportunity to wear the medal. 

I recommend the adoption of suitable lapel 
buttons in place of medals, pins and bars, except the 
William Mercer Wilson Medal, and that the incoming 
Grand Master appoint a committee to select suit- 
able designs and procure the lapel buttons for im- 
mediate use. 

DISCIPLINE 

Bro. David H. Young, a member of St. Andrew's 
Lodge, No. 62, Caledonia, was convicted of the crime 
of incest. The case was so bad and the circum- 
stances so revolting that, after making absolutely 
certain of the identity and of the conviction, I felt 
it was a case for the immediate suspension of Bro. 
Young under section 53. I, therefore, suspended him 
and referred the matter to the Committee on Griev- 
ances and Appeals to investigate further and to make 
an appropriate recommendation to Grand Lodge. 

In a Lodge which I think it wise not to name, 
a feeling of bitterness and utter disharmony dev- 
eloped between certain individuals and also between 
certain factions. The situation was so bad and the 
attitude of some members so unmasonic that the 
satisfactory functioning of the lodge became impos- 
sible. Candidates were being rejected for no other 
reason than that they were proposed by the other 
faction. I gave serious consideration to suspending 
the warrant of the lodge. As the time for the 
annual election of officers drew near it was apparent 
that the situation was going to be aggravated if an 
election took place. I, therefore, directed the pres- 
ent officers to carry on for another year. This 
they are doing. I am hopeful that the interested 
members in all groups are realizing the effect of 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 59 

their unmasonic spirit and attitudes and will make a 
genuine attempt to work together in harmony. If 
they do not, I would think that my successor, as 
Grand Master, will have no choice but to suspend the 
warrant. The members should realize that suspen- 
sion of the warrant automatically suspends all the 
members. 

MEMBERSHIP 

I am sorry to report that again this year we 
show a loss in membership. The report of the 
Grand Secretary will record a loss of 899. That 
number itself may not be serious out of a total 
membership of approximately 135,000 but what is 
serious is the fact that it reveals a trend — a few 
years ago we had comparatively large gains each 
year. These, however, recently have become small- 
er and smaller until last year we showed a loss for 
the first time since 1942 and this year the loss is 
considerably greater. The trend is quite general 
in all the Grand Jurisdictions in North America. 
Some believe it just a cycle through which we are 
passing. There have been such cycles before. Even 
if this be so, however, we should not view the situ- 
ation with complacency and, in particular, where 
members are being suspended for non-payment of 
dues, every effort should be made to ascertain the 
cause of the brother's arrears and endeavour to 
assist him to solve his problems whether they be 
financial or emotional or merely arising from indif- 
ference. Also, there are too many resignations. 
If a brother tenders his resignation, before it is ac- 
cepted a sympathetic effort should be made to as- 
certain his reasons for resigning and, if possible, to 
dissuade him. 

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS 

Notice has been regularly given of several mo- 
tions to be made at this Annual Communication. 
These motions will be presented in a short time and 
will be fully explained. I merely mention them now 



60 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

that you may be somewhat prepared for them. There 
will be a motion to increase the membership of The 
Board of General Purposes by eight members. There 
will be a motion to suspend, for this Communication 
only, a provision in the Constitution against Grand 
Lodge granting to anyone Honorary Past Rank 
higher than that of Grand Senior Warden. 

There will also be several very important mo- 
tions dealing with the procedure for the adminis- 
tration of funds available for charitable purposes. 
There is no suggestion in these motions that will 
change the work or responsibility of The Committee 
on Benevolence but it is hoped that the way may be 
cleared for the establishment of a Foundation for 
charitable purposes which will be a fine instrument 
for a wider exercise of our charitable potential. 

May I say I do hope these proceedings with re- 
gard to the Foundation will receive your warm and 
hearty support. They are the product of a strong 
committee under the Chairmanship of M. W. Bro. 
Pitts and, in my humble view, represent one of the 
most forward steps taken by our Grand Lodge for 
some considerable time. 

GRAND MASTER'S BANQUET 

Tonight the traditional Grand Master's Banquet 
will be held as usual in the Canadian Room of the 
Royal York Hotel. The demand for tickets for this 
outstanding social event of our Grand Lodge invar- 
iably exceeds the supply. I suggest that if you 
have not already obtained your ticket you do so as 
soon as possible. We expect an attendance of ap- 
proximately 1500 which is the limit of the accom- 
modation. Following the dinner and some musical 
entertainment we are to be favoured with an Ad- 
dress by M. W. Bro. Thomas Roy. Rev. Dr. Roy 
is a Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of 
Massachusetts. He has been with us before as 
our guest speaker. He is recognized as one of the 
most outstanding Masonic speakers on the continent. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 61 

You are assured of an interesting and inspiring 
Address. 

APPRECIATIONS 

I would be most ungrateful if I concluded this 
report without an acknowledgement of my appre- 
ciation to those who have assisted me so ably in the 
discharge of my duties as Grand Master. 

I confess that two years ago I undertook the 
task with considerable trepidation. I am not now 
sure that it has been well executed but I am sure 
that whatever has been accomplished has only been 
so because of the assistance of the Past Grand Mas- 
ters and Grand Lodge Officers. I know it is risky 
to start to mention any of them individually because 
some equally deserving may be overlooked. 

M. W. Rro. Harry L. Martyn has made a 
wonderful contribution as Custodian of the Work. 
Throughout the whole jurisdiction I have received 
reports of his great assistance rendered to the Dis- 
trict Deputy Grand Masters through zone meetings 
and in thus maintaining the high standards of our 
ritualistic work. We are all indebted to M. W. Bro. 
Hearn for his careful and painstaking efforts as 
Grand Treasurer. To my Deputy Grand Master and 
all my District Deputy Grand Masters and the two 
Grand Wardens I owe a debt of gratitude. Their 
faithfulness in attendance at receptions, dedications 
and other ceremonies has been a revelation to me. 
V. W. Bro. Rod Connor has exceeded "the call of 
duty" as Grand Director of Ceremonies in his per- 
sonal attention to me. 

Perhaps, most of all, I should acknowledge the 
great assistance of the Grand Secretary, R. W. Bro. 
E. G. Dixon. He and his assistant, R. W. Bro. 
McQueen, and all the members of his staff have 
combined to make my duties lighter and more plea- 
sant. 



62 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

CONCLUSION 

Has Freemasonry any worthwhile contribution 
to make today? 

Certainly, no thinking man can view the world 
situation with complacency. On the morning" of 
the day on which I am writing this report screaming 
headlines in the paper tell us of the crisis in the 
British Government caused by the admitted moral 
turpitude of a high ranking member of the Cabinet ; 
they tell us of violent race riots in several of the 
southern States of the United States of America; 
they tell us of the apprehension of a number of per- 
sons in the Province of Quebec following demonstra- 
tions and some bombings to express a desire to break 
away from our Confederation; they also tell us of 
growing tension between Russia and China as well 
as between those communist countries and the rest 
of the world. It seems that everywhere there is 
evidence of ill will, suspicion, jealousy, nationalistic 
rivalry, bitterness, mistrust and in some quarters 
even hatred. These are all products of a disordered 
heart. 

Obviously the world's difficulties will not be 
solved overnight nor will they be solved by Institu- 
tions or even by Governments until there is a change 
in the hearts of men. 

Here is where Freemasonry can make a signifi- 
cant contribution. 

I make no apology for quoting a passage from a 
splendid booklet by M. W. Bro. Dwight L. Smith, 
Past Grand Master of Indiana. 

"What does Freemasonry mean to us this day? 
It means that it erects its Temples in the hearts of 
men. Through the improvement and strengthen- 
ing of the character of the individual man Free- 
masonry seeks to improve the community. The 
purpose of Freemasonry is the same as it has been 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 63 

since the day when the stones for King Solomon's 
Temple were hewn, squared and numbered in the 
quarries where they were raised. It is to take an 
individual man — just one at a time mind you and 
as a good a man as possible — and try to make a 
better man out of him. That is all. But how des- 
perately the world needs just that. And if that 
technique is outmoded then the experience of two 
thousand years is all wrong; the Parable of the Mus- 
tard Seed is horse and buggy philosophy ; the Leaven 
in the Loaf is a cruel hoax." 

More than anything else today the world yearns 
for that same kind of gentle healing influence at 
work in the hearts of men, The Masonic Institu- 
tion, though it be imperfect as an Institution, yet 
dares to affirm that the way to change human sys- 
tems is to change human lives. 

The crest and crowning of all good, 
Life's final star is Brotherhood. 

Fraternally and respectfully, 

RUSSELL W. TRELEAVEN, 
Grand Master.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. J. A. 
Hearn. and on motion of M.W. Bro. Hearn, seconded 
by M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright, it was received and 
adopted. 

To The Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada in 
the Province of Ontario. 

Brethren: 

The report of the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, 
to which we all listened yesterday with rapt attention, is but 
a brief resume of all he has done during the past year. It was 
a forward step for Freemasonry in this Jurisdiction, whe.n 
the membership prevailed upon M. Wor. Bro. Russell W Tre- 
leaven to accept the office of Grand Master. In the past two 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 65 

years, the contribution he has made to Freemasonry during 
his term of office cannot be reduced to the written or the 
spoken word; everywhere he has gone he has been received 
and welcomed in royal fashion; everywhere he has spoken 
the membership has been enriched by his wise counsel with 
words of wisdom and encouragement. Of course, those of us 
who knew him well were quite aware that he would discharge 
the duties of Grand Master in a manner befitting this gen- 
tleman of learning and culture. 

We sjorrow with him in the passing of distinguished mem- 
bers of our Craft; the late Sir Ernest Herbert Cooper, who 
was so close to our Grand Lodge, Rt. Wor. Bro. James Hamil- 
ton so familiar to us at each Grand Lodge Annual Commun- 
ication as Chairman of Committee on Credentials, and Rt. 
Wor. Bro. E. T. Howe a member of our Committee on Bene- 
volence for so long a period. Your Committee adds their 
words of sympathy to their relatives who remain. 

We add our congratulations to those Lodges which have 
reached the century mark, and are now entitled to wear gold 
braid. Special mention must be made of Norfolk Lodge, No. 
10, Simcoe, on their one hundred and fifty years of service to 
the Craft. 

We concur in the appointment of Grand Representatives 
near other Grand Lodges and those appointments near our 
Grand Lodge; those representatives are chosen carefully; 
they are important. They are our link with other Grand Lod- 
ges for which we have a strong attachment.. 

We wholeheartedly approve in the granting of past rank 
to a number of our brethren for various reasons, some 
through changes in Lodge bylaws and some through death 
prior to the expiration of their term of office. 

We have a warm spot in our heart for the Brother whom 
the Grand Master recommends for the rank of Past Grand 
Master (Honorarv). Rt. Wor. Bro. Dixon has continued to 
serve this Grand Lodge as Grand Secretary since 1937, with 
honour and distinction, well and favourably known through- 
out the Grand Lodges of North America and the British Isles. 
We welcome him with open arms to join that group we 
choose to call "The Grand East". 

We are entirely in accord that this Grand Lodge confer 
the honorary rank of Past Gand Senior Warden on V. W. 
Bro. Robert Strachan. Since his appointment as Chairman 
of the Committee of Scrutineers, he has been most efficient 
and faithful; it is an honour richly deserved. 

We share the same opinion as our Grand Master with re- 
spect to Rt. Wor. Bro. George T. Evans, as an honorary mem- 



66 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

ber of the Board. Many Lodges have turned to Bro. Evans, sol- 
iciting- advice and counsel as to the best methods of remodel- 
ing or building a lodge hall, all this without recompense of 
any kind. We hope he will be spared to enjoy his service to 
the Board and to the Lodges for many years to come. 

The authorization of donations to certain worthy causes 
is officially endorsed by all of our Committee. These contri- 
butions will help to continue the great research and work 
done by these important groups. 

The membership in Port Arthur are to be congratulated 
upon the instituting of Lakehead Lodge, U.D. This will fill 
a need in Algoma District. 

Three new lodges have been constituted and consecrated 
during the year, Eastern, No. 707, at Cornwall, David T. 
Campbell, No. 706, at Whitby and Universe Lodge, No. 705, 
at Markham. This speaks well for the Craft. 

Two new lodge rooms have been dedicated by the Grand 
Master, Prince Arthur, No. 334, Arthur, and Harriston, No. 
262, Harriston. We add our congratulations to the officers and 
members for their continuing interest in the Craft. 

Our Grand Master has travelled widely during the past 
year visiting other Masonic bodies and other Grand Juris- 
dictions. Time did not permit him to accept all of the in- 
vitations. Wherever it was possible the Past Grand Masters, 
the Deputy Grand Master and Wardens have been glad to 
assist. 

We tender our thanks to the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia 
for conferring on one of our own, M. Wor. Bro. C. M. Pitts, 
the rank of a Past Grand Master. We know he will prove 
worthy of their action. 

It was a delight when we learned of the honour con- 
ferred on our Grand Master bv Royal Arch Masons of Can- 
ada, the rank of Past First Principal. Royal Arch Masons 
have always been closely allied with this Grand Lodge. This 
will further serve to strengthen the ties. 

Quatuor Coronati Lodge No. 2076 G.R.E. has much to its 
credit in Masonic research. We concur with the Grand Master 
in permitting the circulation of Lodge Secretaries for re- 
search purposes. 

The late Rt. Wor. Bro. Chas. Hamilton, P.G.M., established 
the Biennial Conference of Canadian Grand Lodges sixteen 
years ago. We are glad to note that the Eighth Biennial Con- 
ference was held in Winnipeg this year. Much good can come 
from this Conference; it has the faculty of bringing our Can- 



TORONTO ONTARIO. 1963 67 

adian Grand and District Grand Lodges much closer together 
on many things that affect Canadian Freemasonry. 

The Grand Masters' and Grand Secretaries' Conferences, 
held this year in Washington, is on a much larger scale em- 
bracing all of the Grand Lodges in North America. 

The question of the wearing of identification badges in 
the Lodges has been discussed frequently. We agree with 
our Grand Master that there is a tendency toward informality 
that is not in keeping with the dignity of the Craft. We de- 
plore the salutation of "Bro. Bill" or "Brother George". 
Could it not easily be "Bro. Smith" or "Bro. Jones"? 

The Grand Master recommends suitable lapel buttons 
for presentation to our veteran members. We concur in his re- 
commend ations . 

We agree, entirely with out Grand Master's action in 
disciplining one member against whom a conviction was reg- 
istered. Too soon, too often the tenets and principles of Free- 
masonry have been forgotten by a few. In the matter of dis- 
harmony in one Lodge, the Grand Master made a wise de- 
cision in continuing the officers for another year. It might 
be well for the members of this Lodge to read again the Past 
Master's charge to the Entered Apprentice. 

It is to be regretted that our Grand Lodge reports a net 
decline in membership. The loss is 899, not large, but it is 
a debit. No jurisdiction can afford membership losses year 
after year. We can do nothing about our losses through 
death, but we can and should do something about suspensions 
and resignations. Let us not fool ourselves that this is a pas- 
sing cycle. There have been cycles before, but they were the 
aftermath or forerunner of events, such as wars and de- 
pressions. None of these events is present now. Our Lodges 
should face up to what is occurring in their individual 
Lodges. 

Naturally, we are in accord with the constitutional 
amendments placed before you this year. They have received 
careful consideration in their preparation and final end use. 

The Grand Master pays tribute to those who have made a 
contribution of service during the past year; "many hands 
make light work". Every one who could was glad to lend a 
hand to assist a very busy Grand Master. 

And now that our Grand Master's term of office wi'l end 
in a few hours, we all wish him well. May he be blessed with 
good health to enjoy the many new friends he has made in 
Freemasonry and may he rejoice in the knowledge that, to 



68 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the best of his ability, he has served Freemasonry well as 
our Grand Master. 

Fraternally and respectfully submitted, 

J. A. HEARN, 

Chairman. 

LETTERS OF REGRET 

The Grand Secretary advised that several let- 
ters and communications had been received from 
Grand Masters, distinguished brethren and Grand 
Lodges extending- most cordial fraternal greetings 
and best wishes and expressing regret that they 
were unable to be present or represented . 

RECEPTION OF GRAND REPRESENTATIVES 

As the Grand Secretary called the roll of Grand 
Representatives of other Grand Lodges those who 
were present stood up and were welcomed by the 
Grand Master. Grand Honours were then given un- 
der the direction of the Grand Director of Ceremon- 
ies. 

AUDITOR'S REPORT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, 

I beg to report having completed the continuous 
monthly audit of the accounts of the Grand Treasur- 
er and of the Grand Secretary for the year ended 
31st. May, 1963, and I have verified the statements 
submitted by the Grand Treasurer showing the re- 
ceipts and disbursements of the General and the 
combined Memorial and Semicentennial Funds for 
the year ended 31st. May, 1963. 

The investment securities of the General, Mem-

Permanent Toronto General Trust Company for my 
inspection. I found them in order. 

I wish to extend my appreciation to the Grand 
Treasurer's Clerk and to the staff at the office of the 
Grand Secretary for their co-operation during the 
audit procedure. 

All of which is fraternally submitted. 

H. FRANK VIGEON, C.A.,

On motion of the Grand Treasurer, seconded by 
the Grand Secretary, the Report and the Auditor's 
Report were received and referred to the Committee 
on Audit and Finance. 

GRAND SECRETARY'S REPORT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. 
of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I present herewith my annual report for the 
year ended May 31, 1963, containing- a Summary of 
Receipts from various sources placed in the General 
Fund; Details of Receipts in the General Fund and 
Ledger Balances as at May 31st, 1963; a Summary 
of Receipts for the year; Details of the Returns of 
Lodges as at May 31st, 1963, a Summary of the 
Receipts and Payments to the Grand Treasurer on 
account of the Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds; 
and a Statement of the Receipts and Disbursements 
on the Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds Revenue 
Account. 

As an appendix to the Proceedings I have re- 
corded the details of the Returns of the 620 warrant- 
ed Lodges and one Lodge under dispensation, as of 
December 31, 1962. 

For the second year in succession, I must report 
a net loss in membership, this year of 899, the second 
loss since 1942. Our total membership as of Dec- 
ember 31, 1962, is 135,192. 

A comparison with last year's statistics shows 
that there was an increase of 74 in the number lost 



78 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

by death. There were 158 more members who re- 
signed and thus deprived themselves of the privil- 
eges of Masonry. I sincerely hope that each lodge 
interviews those who submit their resignation to 
ascertain the reason for withdrawal. Suspensions 
are up by 123 which is a startling increase of over 
12 per cent over last year. Again, I urge the lodges 
to do something about it and interview the delin- 
quents as soon as they are in arrears one year. We 
cannot control losses by death but we can do some- 
thing about 1300 resignations and 1140 suspensions. 

Against such losses we record 3,361 initiations, 
down 259; 763 affiliations, the same as last year; 
and 259 restorations, up just 45. 

Three new lodges were constituted and con- 
secrated and we have two lodges under dispensation, 
giving a total of 622 lodges, one having been institut- 
ed in February, 1963. 

From the Report of the Advisory Committee 
you will note that this year, again, many lodges have 
commenced building operations by way of new prem- 
ises or extensive renovation and remodelling of their 
present quarters, all of which indicates that our 
lodges are becoming conscious of the lack of ade- 
quate facilities for the comfort of their members.

COMMITTEE OF SCRUTINEERS 

The Grand Master appointed V.W. Bro. Robert 
Strachan, Chairman of the Committee of Scruti- 
neers, to supervise and count the vote at the election 
of Grand Lodge Officers, with power to name the 
members of the Committee. 

REPORTS OF THE DISTRICT DEPUTY 
GRAND MASTERS 

The reports of the thirty-eight District Deputy 
Grand Masters were presented by the Grand Secre- 
tary and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, 
seconded by the Grand Secretary, they were received 
and referred to the Board of General Purposes. 

The Report of every District Deputy Grand 
Master is addressed to "The Most Worshipful the 
Grand Master. Officers and Members of the Grand 
Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada in the Province of 
Ontario." Each begins, "Most Worshipful Sir and 
Brethren," and every one ends, quite rightly, "Res- 
pectfully and fraternally submitted." To save space 
these formalities are omitted from the beginning 
and end of each Report. 

ALGOMA DISTRICT 

To discharge the duties of District Deputy Grand Master 
m Algoma District is a responsibility not easily undertaken 
Our District encompasses an area of over forty thousand 



108 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

square miles and to visit each of the five lodges situated 
beyond the boundaries of the twio Lakehead Cities necessi- 
tated driving' some fourteen hundred miles. In spite of the 
isolation in which so many of our brethren reside in this 
vast area of forest and lake I found, wherever I went, the 
spirit of Masonry flourishing and the membership showing 
a slight increase. 

The warmth and enthusiasm with which I was received 
on each of my official visits ever reminded me of the honour 
and privilege accorded every Mason elected to this high and 
important office. In this District, at our present level of 
membership, it is possible for but one member out of every 
two hundred and seventy to become the representative of the 
Grand Master. 

I should be remiss if I failed to compliment the officers of 
all the lodges upon their high standard of performance in 
conferring the three degrees. I must also congratulate the 
Masters of all our lodges who are making every effort tlo 
provide opportunities for those brethren who have not been 
elected or appointed to office to pailicipate in the Work. Not 
only has this stimulated lodge attendance but has revealed 
the otherwise hidden talents of the general membership. I 
trust this practice will continue to grow. 

Early in September we were honoured bv a visit from 
the Grand Master. Most Wor. Bro. R. W. Treleaven, ac- 
companied by Rt. Wor. Bro. E. G. Dixon, Grand Secretary. 
The banquet hall of the hotel was filled to overflowing to 
receive our distinguished guests. Our Grand Master's topic 
was "What is Freemasonry". His words were fully appreci- 
ated and will long be remembered. 

Congratulations and best wishes are extended to Terrace 
Bay Lodge whose members are actively engaged in the 
erection of a new Temple. We know their efforts, as they 
labour evenings, Saturdavs and holidays, will reflect credit 
pm our Order throughout that area. 

The first Lodee of Instruction held at the Lakehead in 
almost a decade was directed by Most Wor. Bro. H. L. Mar- 
tvn in the Fort William Temple, Saturday. November 17th. 
This school proved beneficial to our District and on behalf 
of every member I extend sincere appreciation to Brother 
Martyn. 

The hiehlijrht of my term of office was the Instituting 
of Lakehead Lodge U.D. in the City of Port Arthur, February 
13, 196.3. I have visited this lodge on several occasions since 
and was greatly impressed bv their performance in all as- 
pects of the Work. The lodges of the District have been 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 109 

most generous in providing- both spiritual and material as- 
sistance. From what I have witnessed, Lakehead Lodge 
U.D. is in good hands; its future well assured. 

I was particularly pleased to have been District Deputy- 
Grand Master when my Mother Lodge, Connaught, No. 511, 
celebrated the achievement of fifty years of Masonic life in 
Westfort William. A decidedly successful three day cele- 
bration was arranged by a hard-working Jubilee Committee. 
Present at the dinner were the widows of two of our chart- 
ered members, the only living link with the founders of the 
lodge. 

Divine Services were held by the lodges during the year, 
some independently and others combined. These Services 
were fairly well-attended but still left something to be de- 
sired. 

Positive efforts were made by all the lodges to secure 
the largest possible enrollment in our Masonic Blood Bank. 
This campaign was successfully directed by Wor. Bro. John 
Barr of Fort William Lodge, No. 415. assisted by one chair- 
man from each lodge. Through their efforts four hundred 
and twenty-five Masons have pledged their support to this 
worthy cause by registering with the Red Cross and hospi- 
tals as donors. 

Masonic Education is flourishing throughout the District 
under the capable guidance of Wor. Bro. D.E.C. Schoales of 
Connaught Lodge, No. 511. All lodges now have well or- 
ganized committees and Masonic Education is a regfilar fea- 
ture of lodge meetings. 

The members of the District Staff were: Wor. Bro. John 
BaiT, Chairman of the Masonic Blood Bank, Wor. Bro. DrE.C. 
Schoales, District Supervisor of Masonic Education, Bro. 
Rev. H. A. Vallis of Royal Lodge, No. 453. District Chaplain, 
and Wor. Bro. E. T. Hughes. District Secretary. No Dis- 
trict Deputy could be blessed with a more devoted staff. 
Their diligence and cheerfulness in the performance of their 
duties will leave with me eternally pleasant memories. 

In conclusion. I wish to cnnvey my sincere appreciation 
to all who assisted me so capably during my year and for the 
warmth and kindliness accorded me by every lodge in our 
District. I trust my successor will be" given this same con- 
sideration. 

ALFRED I McFARLANE, D.D.G.M. 

BRANT DISTRICT 

I would like to acknowledge with gratitude and humility, 
the privilege of representing the Grand Master in Brant Dis-' 



110 GRANT) LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

trict. To my own Lodge, Lynden Lodge No. 505, to the Dis- 
trict, and to you Most Worshipful SIR, I offer my sincere 
"Thank Y|ou". The honour that has been bestowed on Lyn- 
den Lodge in giving it its third District Deputy Grand Mas- 
ter in 50 years will long be remembered and ever appreciated. 

It was my good fortune to have associated with me very 
capable and devoted Masons. My thanks and appreciation 
are extended to Wor. Bro. Sterling Hunt, District Secre- 
tary, Wor. Bro. Kenneth Stutt, Director of Masonic Educa- 
tion, Bro. Rev. Norman Russ, District Chaplain, and Very 
Wor. Bro. Wesly Clark, District Chairman of the Blood Don- 
or's Committee. 

I visited all the lodges in Brant District at least once 
and some on other occasions and I am happy ts report that 
I witnessed work done in nearly all lodges, and the work was 
done in a most capable and efficient manner. 

I would like to mention my appreciation of the work 
being done by the Secretaries in all our lodges. Their 
many years of service indicate their devotion to the Craft. 
Likewise their knowledge of procedures is of great value to 
the Worshipful Master and officers. 

T appreciated the work of our District Past Masters' and 
Wardens' Association. Very Wor. Bro. W H. Dilworth has 
presided as President, with Rt. Wor. Bro. R.W.E. McFadden 
as a most capable Secretary. These brethren assisted very 
capably in sponsoring a reception in Brantford Maslonic 
Temple to the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, Bro. R. W. 
Treleaven, who gave a very inspiring address on this occa- 
sion. Three lodges were honoured on their Fiftieth An- 
niversary, Lynden, No. 505, Ozias, No. 508, and Reba, No. 
515. 

I was pleased to be present at a number of Church Ser- 
vices, which were all well-attended. A District Church 
Service was held in Lynden United Church. Bro. Rev. Nor- 
man Russ delivered a verv inspiring address which left a 
fine impression upon the congregation. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank all the officers and mem- 
bers of Brant District for givinsr me the honour of serving 
as D.D.G.M. The very friendly receptions given at each visit 
will be a very pleasant memory, which I will always cherish. 

CHAS. H. HINAN, D.D.G.M. 

BRUCE DISTRICT 

To have been District Deputy Grand Master of Bruce 
District during the past year has been a great and challeng- 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 19$3 ul 

ing privilege and rewarding experience. Wor. Brc, 
Harvey Douglas has served as District Secretary, and he 
has filled the office most capably. The office -of District 
Chaplain was filled by Rev. Bro. J. D. Wilkie who was of 
much help to me. Bro. Stoppard, who accepted the otf ice 
of Supervisor of Masonic Education, spoke in each Lodge of 
the District, discharging his office in a most impressive man- 
ner Amongst other things he conducted a School^ of In- 
struction in the Second Degree, a piece of work which was 
most enthusiastically received. The office of Chairman of 
Blood Donors was filled by Rt. Wor. Bro. Gordon Matthias. 
I visited every lodge in the District at least once, and many 
of them several times. In every lodge I was received with 
all the courtesy and respect which was due to a District 
Deputy Grand Master. One could not help but be greatly 
impressed by the sincerity of the officers of the various 
lodges, and with the manner in which the degrees were con- 
ferred. 

One thing that disturbed me a great deal was the lack 
of safety precautions in many of the lodge buildings. This 
was drawn to their attention, and some of them promised 
to take measures in this regard. Harriston Lodge has, dur- 
ing the year, built a new Temple and all safety precautions 
have been observed. 

It was a privilege to be able to attend many functions 
besides regular lodge meetings. In many of the lodges of 
the District. Ladies' Nights were observed, and I was able to 
attend all but one of these, that one having been held on the 
same night as that of another lodge of the District. In 
each case I was given a cordial welcome and was graciously 
received. I also attended most of the Divine Services. The 
District Divine Service was held in my own church at Clif- 
ford on June 2nd. with a large attendance. The District 
Chaolain preached at this Service. The choir of Speed 
Lodfe. Guelph. added greatly to the service as they led in 
the Service of Praise. 

Bruce District was signally honoured by having a visit 
from Most Wor. Bro. Russell Treleaven. Grand Master, on 
April 3rd. His inspiring address was well-received by the 
gathering which included representatives of all the lodges in 
the District. We are now looking forward to having our 
esteemed Grand Master visit us again, as he comes to ded- 
icate the new Temple in Harriston on June 14th. 

A service which was somewhat unique was held at Burns 
Lodge, Hepworth, when a new Volume of the Sacred Law 
and a set of chimes were dedicated to the Glory of God and 
the service of Masonry- These were the gifts of two Off the 
members of the lodge. 



112 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

One of the enriching experiences of the year was the 
opportunity afforded me to visit with neighboring District 
Deputy Grand Masters, and to have them visit with me, out 
of which have grown a fine fellowship and a lasting associa- 
tion. 

In conclusion, may I state that I have appreciated the 
help and co-operation which I have received from all the 
brethren, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank 
them all for the privilege which they have afforded me to 
enrich my own Masonic experience while I have filled this 
office. 

Whatever contribution I have been able to make to Ma- 
sonry has been a privilege indeed, and I sincerely hope that 
I have been able to do a piece of work which w T ill have last- 
ing effects. 

JOHN FERGUSON, D.D.G.M. 



CHATHAM DISTRICT 

May I express my appreciation for the privilege of re- 
presenting the Grand Master in Chatham District. It has 
been an experience I will long remember. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Roy Little John, Highgate Lodge, 
No. 336, District Secretary, and Bro. Rev. G. E. Morrow of 
Howard Lodge, No. 391, Ridgetown, District Chaplain, Wor. 
Bro. Kenneth Colwell of Baldoon Lodge, No. 694, Wallace- 
burg, Chairman of Blood Donors Committee, Rt. Wor. Bro. 
Harold L. Martin, Sydenham Lodge, No. 255, Dresden, Chair- 
man of Masonic Education. I wish to thank these brethren 
for the manner in which they fulfilled the duties of their 
respective offices. 

On my Official Visits to the 15 lodges of the District I 
was well -received. All but two lodges had degree work. 
These two exemplified the examination in the Third Degree. 
It was a pleasure to see the Officers of all the lodges do 
their work. In many of the lodges the young Officers are 
giving the various lectures and charges. 

The District has a loss in membership of 67 for the 
year ending December 31. 1962. This was due mostly to 
deaths which were 78. Th^re -were 22 suspensions and 27 
resignations. Many of the resignations were where the 
lodges had to raise their dues. I do not feel "that these 
brethren should be considered too serious a loss to the Ma- 
sonic Order if a few dollars cause them to resign. Or per- 
haps we have failed in many cases in not carrying out our 
duties in Masonic Education. Too many brethren leave the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 113 

Lodge, after receiving the Third Degree, not knowing what 
Freemasonry is. 

I am pleased to note that the lodges of the District are 
paying more fraternal visits and are doing the Work. On 
September 28, 1962, I met with the Masters and Senior War- 
dens of the District at Highgate Lodge and conveyed to 
them the instructions which I had received from Most Wor. 
Bro. Harry L. Martyn, Custodian of the Work. 

All lodges in the District held Divine Services which 
were attended exceptionally well. The District Divine Ser- 
vice was held in Highgate United Church on Sunday evening, 
May 216, 1963, with a good attendance. Bro. Rev. G. E. 
Morrow, District Chaplain, was the Minister, assisted by 
Bro. Rev. A. R. Taylor, Pastor of Highgate United Church. 

A Past Grand Lodge Officers' Night was held in Wel- 
lington Lodge. No. 46. The Very Wor. Brethren occupied 
the chairs. The Rt. Wor. Brethren exemplified the Third 
Degree. It was very impressive, the lodge being filled to 
capacity. 

My wife and I had the pleasure of attending a number 
of Ladies' Nights. We enjoyed ourselves very much. 

On March 26. 196.3. I had the rrteasure of attending a 
Reception for the Grand Master in St. Thomas. On March 
2(7, 1963, on my Official Visit to Star of the East Lodge. 
No. 422, I had the honour of presenting two Fifty Year 
Medals. 

The highlight of the year was the visit of the Grand 
Master to Chatham District. On May 3rd. 1963, a Recep- 
tion was held in Ridgetown for Most Wor. Bro. R. W. Tre- 
leaven. After the banquet the Grand Master delivered a 
most inspiring address to 235 brethren. There were fifteen 
Grand Lodge Officers present. I wish to thank the Com- 
mittees for their support. 

In concluding my report I wish to thank the Wor. Mast- 
ers. Officers and brethren who so faithfully supported me 
and attended my visits. To my successor I pledge my sup- 
port and ask for him the same co-operation of the District. 

PETER L. LALONDE. D.D.G.M. 

EASTERN DISTRICT 

My year as District Deputv Grand Master of Eastern 
District was a very enjoyable and pleasant one. as well as a 



114 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

rewarding - and educational experience. Each of the twenty 
lodges in the District gave full co-operation. 

I appointed, as my District Secretary, Wor. Bro. H. E. 
Keeler, who throughout the year has been a most capable 
and efficient officer and has been of the greatest assistance 
to me. 

Wor. Bro. The Rev. J. Leslie Dean of Friendly Brothers' 
Lodge, No. 143, Iroquois, was chosen as District Chaplain 
and he accompanied me on several Official Visits. 

Very Wor. Bro. George E. Revell of Corinthian Lodge, 
No. 669, consented to act as Supervisor of Masonic Educa- 
tion, and with the full support of his lodge and my own re- 
commendation has undertaken a program to carry Masonic 
Education to each of the lodges in the District. A tentative 
date has been set for November 2nd for a meeting in Corn- 
wall for the guidance and instruction of the principal officers 
of each lodge. 

I visited each lodge at least once during my year. I 
was received on all occasions with friendliness, respect and 
sincerity. The work by the various lodges was of a high 
calibre and the officers were well-skilled. At the banquet 
table I endeavoured to give a short talk on some aspects of 
Masonry related to the three degrees and its application in 
daily life. 

Mrs. Amell and I, accompanied by my Secretary and his 
daughter Mrs. Carl Coons, have been happy to accept in- 
vitations to several social functions in the District and have 
enjoyed meeting so many of the brethren and their ladies. 
I was again pleased to renew acquaintance with Bt. Wor. 
Bro. The Rev. Dr. C. Ritchie Bell at a Ladies' Night in Corn- 
wall, sponsored by Finch Lodge, No. 557. 

The Lodge Secetaries are to be commended for the man- 
ner in which they perform their duties. The sound finan- 
cial situation of the lodges is due in no small measure to the 
guiding hand of the Secretaries. 

Practically all lodges now have a Committee for Masonic 
Education and short lectures are given at many meetings. 

Almost all lodges in the District held a Divine Service 
and reported erood attendances. The District Divine Service 
was held in St. John's United Church, Iroquois, and the at- 
tendance was good. The District Chaplain was in charge 
of the Service and delivered an excellent sermon on "The 
Volume of the Sacred Law". A Masonic Choir added much 
to the enjoyment of the Service. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1963 115 

My Secretary and 1 visdted twice at Belleville, to pay 
our respects to the Grand Chaplain in October, 1962, and to 
the Grand Master in April, 1963. We also visited twice in 
St. Lawrence District. 

During the year I had the pleasure of presenting several 
Fifty Year Medals and in one lodge several Past Masters' 
Jewels. 

Excelsior Lodge, Morrisburg, celebrated its centennial 
with a full week of outstanding events, ending with a Divine 
Service. 

At each Official Visit I stressed the need of organizing 
a Blood Clinic in the name of the lodge. The seed has been 
sown and it will be further nurtured by my successor. 

I appreciated the most useful knowledge imparted at 
Brockville, by Moist Wor. Bro. Harry L. Martyn, the Custod- 
ian of the Work, and have passed on to each lodge many of 
his suggestions. 

The outstanding Masonic event was the Constituting and 
Consecrating of Eastern Lodge, No. 707. Cornwall, on Sept- 
ember 20th, 1962, conducted by Most Wor. Bro. C. M. Pitts. 
Many Grand Lodge Officers took part in the impressive 
ceremony. 

On my Official Visit to my Mother Lodge, my Secretary 
and I were each presented with a set of cuff links and tie 
bar with Masonic emblem. 

In concluding my report may I once again express my 
appreciation of the hospitality I received in every lodge, and 
the many kindnesses shown to me during mv term of office. 
My thanks are extended to those Past Grand Lodge Officers, 
Masters. Past Masters and brethren who showed, by their 
presence at so manv meetings, that the spirit of Masonry in 
Eastern District will ever flourish. 

I have gained many friends and would ask that they 
give loyal support to my successor.

FRONTENAC DISTRICT 

I have the honour to submit my report on the state of 
Masonry in Frontenac District for the year 1962-63. 

It has been a privilege and a great honour to serve as 
the representative of the Grand Master for this old and 
storied Frontenac District for the past year, and I shall be 



116 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

forever grateful to the brethren of the District 
fo.r electing me to this high office. It has been a great and 
rewarding experience for me, and I shall treasure, 
for the rest of my life, the new friendships I have made and 
the old ones renewed. Unfortunately last fall and the early 
part of last winter, I was in and out of hospital on two oc- 
casions, which somewhat disrupted my schedule and plans, 
but everyone was most considerate and helpful at this time 
dn relieving me of many duties which I was unable to per- 
form personally. 

I found on my various visits to the eighteen lodges in 
the District that the ritualistic work was of a high order, 
and that the financial condition of all lodges was satisfactory, 
and particularly that the subject of Masonic Education was 
receiving the attention it deserved in many of the lodges. 
I was also pleased to see that, in a number of the lodges, the 
Worshipful Masters, many of the Officers, and also many of 
the candidates for initiation wpta romoaratively young men. 
The fact that young men of this type are attracted ta our 
Order, in spite of the many other diversions typical of this 
day and age, speaks well for the state of Masonry in the 
District. 

The Grand Master's visit to the District in April last 
was, of course, the highlight of the year, and there was a 
full attendance of the brethren on that occasion to do hon- 
our to him and to hear a most inspiring address from him. 
We were also honoured by the presence of Rt. Wor. Bro. 
E. G. Dixon, Grand Secretary, and V. W. Bro. R. J. Connor, 
Grand Director of Ceremonies. 

I would like to mention in this report my appreciation 
for the work done by the Secretaries of the various lodges, 
which made my work much easier when I called on them for 
various reoorts. and also my thanks to the District Secre- 
tary, W. Bro. W. J. Wiggins, for his unflagging interest in 
accompanying me on my official visits and assisting me in 
every way. 

And finally. I would like to pay tribute to those Past 
Grand Lodge Officers, Past Masters and Masters, whose 
loyalty and support were demonstrated by their presence on 
so many of my visits, and were a constant source of en- 
couragement and pleasure to me. 

I can only hope that during my year of office my visits 
have made some contribution to the sum total of good Ma 
sonic relations in Frontenac District, which has been founded 
and fostered bv the many distinguished brethren who have 
been my predecessors in this office.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 117 

GEORGIAN DISTRICT 

It has been an honour and a privilege to represent the 
Grand Master in Georgian District and I take great pleasure 
in presenting my report on the condition of Masonry in this 
District for the past year. 

I would like to express my sincere appreciation and 
gratitude to the brethren of Georgian District for the hon- 
our they bestowed upon me by choosing me as their D.D.G.M., 
and to you, Most Worshipful Sir, for confirming their choice. 

I am deeply indebted to my father, Wor. Bro. Albert W. 
Gilroy, P.M. of Manitoba Lodge, No. 236, who acted as Dis- 
trict Secretary. W. Bor. Albeii; W. Gilroy accompanied me 
on all my visits. He relieved me of much of the details of 
the work by his efficient handling of the secretarial duties. 
His reports of the records of each lodge show that they are 
well-kept and in good order. 

R. W. Bro. W. M. Lee, Past Grand Chaplain, consented 
to act as District Chaplain, and his excellent guidance and 
advice during the year was greatly appreciated. W. Bro. 
Ross K. Elliott very effectively fulfilled the duties of Dis- 
trict Chairman of Masonic Education, as did W. Bro. George 
Fry as the District Chairman of Blood Donors. I would 
also like to express my thanks to R. W. Bro. J. J. Robins, 
Caledonia Lodge No. 249, District Treasui'er, for his co- 
operation and assistance. 

Each of the twenty lodges was visited officially once 
and many several times during the year. T would like to 
extend my congratulations to the Worshipful Masters and 
their officers for the excellent manner in which they carried 
out the Work. I am particularly pleased with the interest 
and enthusiasm that I found in most lodges for their work 
in Masonic Education. It was gratifving to have large at- 
tendances at almost all my Official Visits. 

A number of the lodges in Georgian District have lodge 
rooms where improvements are necessary to bring them up 
to regulations on Fire Safety. In even- ca-p committees 
have been formed to make the necessary alterations. 

Many of the lodges have held "Ladies' Nights" and W. 
Bro. Albert Gilroy and Mrs. Gilroy with mv wife and I were 
privileged to attend many of these pleasant occasions. We 
were made welcome on all such visits and we thoroughly 
enjoyed meeting the brethren and their wives. 

The Georgian District Masonic Officers' Association has 
had a very active year under the capable leadership of W. 



118 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Bro W. T. Kirkpatrick of Corinthian Lodge, No. 96. Their 
assistance in organizing the Lodge of Instruction held m 
Orillia on April 29, 1963, was greatly appreciated. At this 
Lodge of Instruction R. W. Bro. T. J. Purvis explained the 
work in the Fellowcraft Degree. The Officers for the. 
evening were the Wardens from the various lodges in the 
District. We are indebted to Equity Lodge, No. 659, and 
Orillia Lodge, No. 192, for their assistance, as well as R.W. 
Bro. T. J. Purvis for his time and interest in preparing a 
most helpful and inspiring presentation. 

During the year W. Bro. Albert Gilroy and I have visited 
many of the lodges on sipecial occasions in the_ District, and 
on several occasions lodges in neighbouring Districts. On 
June 15. 1963, we plan to join Equity Lodge No. 659, and 
Orillia Lodge- No. 192, on a fraternal visit to Pittsburg, Pa. 

Divine Services were held by most of the lodges in the 
District, and the District Divine Service was held on June 9, 
1963. in Cookstown United Ohurch. The District Chaplain, 
R. W. Bro. W. M. Lee, delivered an inspiring message on 
"The Distinguishing Characteristics of a Mason's Heart" on 
this occasion. The co-operation of all Masters and all lodges 
made this Service a real success. 

I must, in this report, express my thanks to R. W. Bro. 
E. G. Dixon. R. W. Bro. Geo. McQueen, and to Most W. 
Bro. H. L. Martyn, Past Grand Master, for the help and 
friendly counsel that were so freely given. 

In conclusion, I would like to say "thanks" to all who 
have assisted me throughout my term of office. I am at a 
loss to express fully mv sincere appreciation of the support 
extended to me by the Masters, officers, and members in this 
District. It is my hope that, during my term of office, I 
have been able to contribute in some small way to the ad- 
vancement of Masonry in Georgian District. 

EARL W. GILROY, D.D.G.M. 

GREY DISTRICT 

It has been an honour, pleasure and a source of valuable 
experience for me to have had the privilege of serving as 
District Deputy Grand Master in Grey District for the Ma- 
sonic year 1962-1963. 

I express my gratitude to the brethren of Lome Lodge, 
No. 377, for selecting me as their candidate for this high 
office, to the brethren of Grey District for electing me. and 
to you Most Worshipful Sir. for your confirmation of that 
election. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1963 119 

My duties and responsibilities were made much easier 
and enjoyable because of the able assistance I received from 
the District Secretary, Wor. Bro. T. Harold McGhee, the 
District Chaplain, Bro. J. M. Dobson, the District Chairman 
of Masonic Education, Wor. Bro. Bernard Robinson, and the 
Chairman of the Blood Donors' Committee, Wor. Bro. Clar- 
ence E. Gillis. To these brethren I wish to express my sin- 
cerest thanks and appreciation. 

I visited each lodge once, some more often, and am 
happy to report that the very sincere and warm welcome ex- 
tended to me conveyed the high esteem in which the Grand 
Master is held throughout our District. In every lodge I 
witnessed degrees being conferred, and the calibre of the 
work in most instances was of the highest order with a num- 
ber of the younger members participating. The District 
Secretary reports that the books and records of each lodge 
are neatly kept and that the Secretaries are most efficient. 

Most lodges in the District have held Divine Services 
but I have been able to attend only a few of these. Simi- 
larly, most lodges have held Ladies' Nights and Mrs. Newell 
and I had the pleasure of attending many of these enjoyable 
evenings. District Divine Service was held in St. Paul's 
Anglican Church in Shelburne, on Sunday, May 26th, and a 
good attendance was recorded. 

The Past Masters', Masters' and Wardens' Association 
was quite active during the year and provided excellent as- 
sistance to me. This year a District Ladies' Night was held 
for the fii-st time in Grey District and was well received in 
the Village of Markdale. The Visitation's Committee ar- 
ranged interlodge visits in the District which enabled more 
brethren to become more intimately acquainted. The Associa- 
tion sponsored a Lodge of Instruction which was held on 
April 30th in Owen Sound. The Senior Wardens of the Dis- 
trict exemplified the Fellmvcraft Degree. Rt. Wor. Bro. W. M. 
Prentice acted as commentator, and Rt. Wor. Bro. J. A. 
Irvine, Deputy Grand Master was guest speaker at the ban- 
quet which followed. This proved to be a very profitable 
evening and many favourable comments were received. I 
wish this Association continued success in the District. 

Grey District has been honoured to receive many visits 
from members of Grand Lodge and neighbouring D.D.G.M's 
during the year, and I have had many enjoyable evenings in 
attempting to reciprocate. 

On June 10th, Prince Arthur Lodge, No. 334. Arthur, 
will be dedicating their new Masonic Temple. The Grand 
Master, accomoanied bv several Grand Lodee Officers will 
be in charge of the ceremonies. The brethren of this lodge 



120 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

are to be congratulated on their new Temple, and they have 
erected it mostly with gratis labour. 

Hiram Lodge, No. 216, Orangeville, have their new Tem- 
ple under construction and hope that it will be completed for 
dedication in the fall of 1963. When it is completed we will 
have five new Masonic Temples in Grey District in as many 
years. 

I regret to report that, during my year in office, two 
Past District Deputy Grand Masters of Grey District, in the 
persons of Rt. Wor. Bro. Thos. Reburn. of Markdale, and 
Rt. Wor. Bro. Samuel Patterson, of Shelburne, have passed 
to the Great Beyond. 

In conclusion, may I again thank the brethren of Grey 
District for the honour they have conferred on me. It has 
been a distinct privilege and pleasure to represent the Grand 
Master this past year. I wish to speak for my successor 
the same loyal support and courtesies which have been ex- 
tended to me and through me to you, Most Worshipful Sir. 
I hope that I have in some small way merited the trust re- 
posed in me and that I may have contributed somewhat to 
the betterment of Masonry in general and Grey District in 
particular. 

WILFRED M. NEWELL. D.D.G.M. 



HAMILTON DISTRICT "A" 

During my term of office it has been my privilege and 
pleasure to visit each of the 19 lodges in the District, once 
officially. Several other lodges were visited asweU. I am 
pleased to report that the condition of Masonry in this Dis- 
trict would seem to be in a healthy state. The work in all 
degrees, which I witnessed, was conscientiously and sincere- 
ly done. In some cases the work was given to a junior 
member, which seemed to create more enthusiasm and inter- 
est for those not occupying an office. The Secretaries had 
the records of the lodges in excellent condition and the re- 
ports submitted were very concise and complete. It is, 
however, regretted that in some lodges a drop in member- 
ship was recorded. In only 5 was an increase noted. 

In all the lodges there was some program of Masonic 
Education carried out. While on the subject of Masonic 
Education I would like to pay special tribute to R.W. Bro. 
W. J. Somerville the Supervisor of Masonic Education in this 
District. There were three district meetings held during 
the term and it was largely due to his organization and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 m 

hard work that these meetings were the success they were. 
All were very well-attended and enthusiastically received. 

The Past Masters' and Masters' and Wardens' Associa- 
tions are strong and active groups in this District. The 
Masters of 1962-1963 were well-organized and the support 
of these two groups was greatly appreciated at all the visits 
throughout the term. 

Two District Church Services were held during the year, 
as well as individual Services held by the various lodges in 
the District. 

On several occasions it was my happy privilege to attend 
functions outside the District. Two of these were dinners 
and receptions tendered the Grand Master. Another was 
to accompany the Grand Master at the installation of officers 
in his mother lodge. All were very impressive and greatly 
enjoyed. 

I would like to thank all those who, during my term of 
office, assisted and supported me in any way. 

JOHN W. C. HUNTER, D.D.G.M. 



HAMILTON DISTRICT "B" 

It has been a great honour- and a very rewarding ex- 
perience for me, during the past year, to have served as the 
representative of the Grand Master in Hamilton District 
"B" Everywhere I visited in the District my reception was 
most cordial, and the warmth of true Masonic fraternal fel- 
lowship was always in evidence. This. I believe, is an in- 
dication of the esteem that the Fraternitv holds for the 
Grand Master and the Grand Lodge, of which we are a part. 

I feel that I must express my thanks to the Grand Mas- 
ter for being so considerate with me and my problems at the 
beginning of my term of office and for the privilege and 
honour of being- his representative. I will be ever mindful 
of the guiding hand of our Grand Master, who has devoted 
his life in the best interest of what is good and true. 

The appointment of W. Bro. R. W. Davey as District 
Secretary proved to be a most excellent choice. He has 
carried out his duties very carefully and thoroughly and has 
been a great help to me in providing encouragement and 
friendly advice that one so often needs. 

I appointed Bro. Eric Taylor, a recipient of the Wm. 
Mercer Wilson Medal, as Chairman of Masonic Education 
for the District, a position in which he has distinguished 



122 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

himself very much as he has been requested by members of 
lodges outside our District to give talks to them on Masonic 
Education. 

Bro. Rev. J. S. Bole, B.A., kindly accepted the position of 
District Chaplain and gave unselfishly of his time in the 
interests of the Craft. He conducted the District Divine 
Service in Grace United Church and delivered a very inspiring 
sermon. He made mention that this was the first Masonic 
Service held in that Church in its 113 years of service. 

The appointment of W. Bro. Wm. A. McKinnell as As- 
sistant District Chaplain and W. Bro. Ross L. Jackson as 
Chairman, District Blood Donors' Committee, also proved 
very successful. 

I visited each of the twenty lodges in my District of- 
ficially and was always received with great respect and 
honour. It gives me great pleasure to report that Masonry 
in this District is enjoying prosperity, with one or two ex- 
ceptions, and the lodges are under capable leadership. 

I would like to pay tribute to the '62 Masters, the '63 
Masters, the Past Masters' Association and the Masters' 
and Wardens' Association for their untiring support during 
the past year- 

I had the honour of presenting the Fifty Year Veteran 
Jubilee Medal to Bro. Harvey R. Campbell of Electric Lodge 
No. 495, Hamilton and to W. Bro. Robertson of Union 
Lodge No. 7, Grimsby. 

I was able to attend six Divine Services; this custom is 
becoming almost universal in this Grand Jurisdiction. At 
most of them I was honoured to read a lesson. What an 
opportunity for Masons to witness their faith in the Great 
Architect of the Universe. 

Mrs. Jackson and I were very pleased to be able to attend 
eighteen Ladies' Nights held by various lodges of the two 
Hamilton Districts which we thoroughly enjoyed. 

The two Hamilton Districts held a reception for M.W. 
Bro. R. W. Treleaven. Masons from Hamilton and district 
and as far away as Saskatchewan and New York State hon- 
oured our Grand Master. 

_ In closing, I wish to thank all those who assisted me 
during my term of office. The many kindnesses extended 
to me are indeed appreciated and it is my sincere hope that 
I have, in some small way, strengthened the bonds of Friend- 
ship.

H. GRANT JACKSON, D.D.G.M. 

LONDON DISTRICT 

To have been D.D.G.M. in London District has been one of 
the most enlightening and rewarding experiences of my life 
and to have been the representative of the Most Worshipful 
the Grand Master was an honour and a privilege. 

The year's activity was made easier because of the as- 
sistance and support I received from Wor. Bro. D. E. Math- 
ews, District Secretary, Bro. Rev. C. F. Waite, District Chap- 
lain, Wor. Bro. W. Botham, Supervisor Masonic Education, 
and Wor. Bi'o. Wm. Fuller, Blood Donors' Chairman. Each 
one completely fulfilled the requirements of his office, and 
I sincerely thank them. 

Every lodge in the District was visited and the ritual 
was well-done in a uniform manner throughout, indicating 
a sincere interest on the part of the Worshipful Masters and 
Officers to maintain the high level of work which has been 
practised in this District. 

Many of the lodges have had Divine Services which were 
well -attended. There were also what to me seemed a sur- 
prisingly large number of Masonic Funeral Services. I had 
a preconceived opinion that in to-day's society, at least in 
this District, there was no place for Masonic Funeral Ser- 
vices. However, I have changed my view to a more moder- 
ate one that the ritual should be revised to conform to a 
funeral parlour service. 

I hesitate to single out any particular lodge activity- 
However, the sunrise open-air Divine Service and breakfast 
held annuallly at Fans-haw Park sponsored by Kilwinning 
Lodge, No. 64, has grown to such proportions, I feel my re- 
port would not be complete without reference to it. This 
year it was held on June 2nd. at 7:30 a.m.. and there were 
over 700 in attendance. Bro. Ver. Rev. K.B. Keefe, Dean 
of St. Paul's Cathedral, was in charge of the Service, with 
Bro. Rev. C F. Waite. District Chaplain, assisting. The 
Optimist Boys' Choir led in the musical parts of the Service. 

All of the district functions were well-supported; the 
District Divine Service, held at New St. James Presbyterian 
Church on April 28 at 7:00 p.m.. was well-attended with the 
Church almost full. It was suggested to me that 7:00 p.m. 
is not the most convenient time for rural members to be able 
to attend, and I recommend some consideration be given 
to this. 



124 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL, COMMUNICATION 

A Lodge of Instruction was held in the London Temple 
at which the Senior Wardens of the District exemplified the 
Second Degree under the guidance of and assisted by the 
District Education Committee. It was well-atteded and 
well received. 

The Grand Master, Most Worshipful Bro. Treleaven, was 
received at a banquet in his honour on March 27th- There 
were over 300 in attendance, and I feel it was the highlight 
of the year. The committee in charge of arrangements, 
under capable chairmanship of Et. Wor. Bro. A. C. Whitmore, 
functioned flawlessly, and the thought-provoking address of 
our Grand Master, combined with his kindly and gracious 
manner, made it an event long to be remembered. 

We conducted Two Blood Donors' Clinics, one in Oc- 
tober and one in April. There were approximately 100 at 
each Clinic, and the London Red Cross were highly pleased 
with the results, which in no small measure was due to the 
effort of Chairman Wor. Bro. Wm. Fuller, and his Secretary 
Wor. Bro. Fred Aldous. 

A recap of the District would indicate a slight drop in 
membership, with deaths almost equalling initiations, the loss 
then coming from resignations and suspensions. 

Average attendance at all meetings was 43 with city 
lodges generally running between 10 and 15% of membership; 
whereas rural lodges in the main were about 30% of mem- 
bership. 

I attempted to work up some enthusiasm for our Grand 
Lodge Manual for Instructors and Students, and on several 
occasions, used sections from the Manual as a basis for my 
address. I enjoyed particularly giving a short explanation 
of the Master Mason's Chart, and I found that the subject 
was well-received. 

Mrs. Smith and I, together with Wor. Bro. and Mrs. 
Mathews, were delighted to attend many Ladies' Nights, for 
which we thank the lodges in the District. Also the com- 
radeship of the D.D.GM's from surrounding districts was 
most enjoyable. 

The London Masonic Temple was sold a year ago to the 
London Life Insurance Company and will be vacated and torn 
down this summer. Construction on a new Temple has 
commenced, but will not be readv for occupancy until mid- 
winter, so the city lodges will be facing a somewhat difficult 
period m the coming autumn. Fortunatelv, Ashlar No 610 
at Byron and Nil es town No. 345 at Nilestown have good ac- 
comodation, and the city lodges have arranged to meet tem- 
porarily in one or other of those places. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 125 

It is to be noted that only 5 of the 25 London District 
lodges carry fidelity bond coverage for their Secretaries and 
Treasurers, and it occurred to me that it might be feasible 
for Grand Lodge to carry a blanket bond covering all Sec- 
retaries and Treasurers. 

I should like to take this opportunity to thank Rt. Wor. 
Bro. A. E- MacGregor, Grand Lodge Librarian, for his as- 
sistance in choosing reading material for my use and also 
I thank Rt. Wor. Bro. E. G. Dixon. Grand Secretary, and 
his assistant, Rt. Wor. Bro. George McQueen, for the prompt 
and helpful assistance in all of the matters requiring their 
attention. 

C. C. SMITH. D.D.G.M. 



MUSKOKA-PARRY SOUND DISTRICT 

First, may I express to the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Master, M. W. Bro. R. W. Treleaven, and the brethren of 
Muskoka - Parry Sound District, my most appreciative thanks 
for a rewarding year as D.D.G.M. I was indeed fortunate 
in having Wor. Bro. E- Mingus Moore, as the District Sec- 
retary, Rt. Wor. Bro. William E. Clark, as District Chaplain, 
and Wor. Brother James Sim, as the Chairman of Masonic 
Education. They attended all the Inspections and each has 
made a very generous contribution to Masonry in this Dis- 
trict. 

The District Secretary reported that the books and fin- 
ancial records of all the lodges are in excellent condition, 
and each lodge financially sound. I officially visited all 
the lodges in the District., also for fraternal visits and in- 
stallations. My reception in all the lodges was most 
gracious; the Grand Master and Grand Lodge was awarded 
respect and honour. 

The capable manner in which the Master and his of- 
ficers conducted the business and conferred degrees, speak 
well for the future of Masonry in each lodge. The high 
calibre of the candidates augurs well for the future of Ma- 
sonry- On each visit the importance of Masonic Education 
was stressed by the Chairman of Masonic Education. I am 
happy to report that Masonic Education is a regular pro- 
gram in each lodge. Wor. Brother Sim contributed several 
talks during the year. 

There were several highlights during my year as Dis- 
trict Deputy Grand Master. The visit of onr Grand Master, 
to a District Reception and Banquet in Sundridge on May 1, 
will long be remembered by the brethren who were present. 



126 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The Address by our distinguished guest was most inspiring. 
The Grand Secretary, Rt. Wor. Bro. E. G. Dixon, accompan- 
ied our Grand Master. 

On December 19th, 1962, Granite Lodge, No. 352, Parry 
Sound, honoured Rt. Wor. Bro. Adam Brown, Past District 
Deputy Grand Master, who celebrated his 100th. birthday 
on December 17th. 1962. Wor. Bro. Brown enjoys good 
health and attends his lodge regularly and takes part in the 
work. He has honoured me by being present on three oc- 
casions during the year. He attended the reception to our 
Grand Master in Sundridge. 

Unity Lodge, No. 376, Huntsville, honoured Rt. Wor- 
Bro. H. E. Rice when he received his Medal for being 50 
years a Past Master. I also attended Strong Lodge, No. 
423, Sundridge, when Brother G. F. Hall and Brother John 
W. Sedore were presented with Veteran Jubilee Medals by 
their sons. 

The District Church Service held in Zion United Church, 
Sundridge. on June 2nd, was well-attended by the brethren 
•of the District, with all lodges represented. Rt- Wor. Bro. 
-John Smorthwaite, P. D.D.G.M. of North Bay, was the speak- 
er, and gave us a challenging message. The text was "Let 
There Be Light". Thanks are due to our District Chaplain 
for arranging this very impressive Service. Each lodge of 
•the District held their own Church Service. During the 
year, two of our own Past District Deputy Grand Masters 
were called to the Grand Lodge Above, in the persons of 
Rt. Wor. Bro. J. J. Wilson, of Corona Lodge, No. 454, Burks 
Falls, and Rt. Wor. Bro. W. Roy Dixon of Algonquin Lodge, 
No. 434, Emsdale. 

"We cherish their memory". 

I extend many thanks for the help and advice of my pre- 
decessors and for the assistance and co-operation of the Mas- 
ters of each lodge in the District. 

I shall cherish many very pleasant memories of a most 
enjoyable year in the service of Masonry in the District.

Duke. To these brethren I owe a great debt. 

Accompanied by the District Secretary, Chaplain and 
the Supervisor of Masonic Education, I officially visited each 
of the fourteen lodges in Niagara "A" once, when a degree 
was conferred, with the exception of Seymour in Port Dal- 
housie, ward of St. Catharines, owing to sickness. How- 
ever, Rt. Wor. Bro. Gerald C. Brown, D.D.G.M- of Niagara 
"B", very kindly consented to fill in for me on this occasion. 
I also attended all installations in which I had the pleasure 
of confirming their officers. 

Mrs. Muir and I accepted all invitations to be present 
with the various lodges on their Ladies' Nights, which we 
thoroughly enjoyed, accompanied by Wor. Bro. K. W- Awrey 
and Mrs. Awrey. 

Divine Services were held by all lodges and the District. 
Divine Service under the sponsorship of St. Andrew's Lodge 
was held in the Welland Avenue United Church and was 
attended by some two hundred Masons. 

I had the honour and privilege of presenting Veteran 
Jubilee Medals to Wor. Bro. Logie of Amity Lodge, Dunn- 
ville, Rt. Wor. Bro. J. H. Patterson and Wor. Bro. R. Vance 
of Coronation Lodge. 

In conclusion, may I say that it has been an experience 
of great pleasure to represent The Grand Master in Niagara 
"A", one which I shall never forget. I hope that in some 
small way I have left something that will be a benefit to 
the Craft in this District.

NIAGARA DISTRICT "B" 

Representing Niagara District "B" as D.D.GM. for the 
M. W. the Grand Master, was the proudest period of my 
Masonic life. When one mentions Niagara District "B" one 
expects near perfection, and I can assure you I was not dis- 
appointed. 

The assistance I received from my District Secretary, 
W. Bro. Lloyd C. Russ. District ChaDlain, Bro. the Rev. G. 
Nelson Standish and the District Supervisor of Masonic 
Education, Wor. Bro- Gordon Taylor, cannot be praised 



128 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

too highly. Each individual officer in his own capacity 
-made the" year 1962-63 an .outstanding event in every lodge 
in Niagara District "B". Bro. W. 0. Robertson, Chairman 
was received in a most friendly and courteous manner at all 
of the District Blood Donors' Committee, must be congratu- 
lated on his untiring efforts regarding this important office. 

On my official visits to the 14 lodges of this District, I 
was rece : ved in a most friendly and courteous manner, at all 
times, showing the high esteem that all Masons have for their 
Grand Master and his representatives. 

The degree work is done in an excellent manner under 
the capable leadership of our Masters, officers and ever 
faithful Past Masters. 

Due to illness of Rt. Wor. Bro. David M. Muir, DD.G.M. 
Niagara District "A", I had the honour and privilege of in- 
specting Seymour Lodge, No. 277, on Wednesday, Mar. 13th, 
1963, and I am happy to report that I found their work of a 
high standard. I must at this time express my sincere 
thanks for our wonderful reception. 

On Nov. 13th. 1962, W. Bro. James Johnstone and I 
visited Manito Lodge. No. 90, Collingwood, on the occasion of 
War Veteran's Night and had a most enjoyable evening. 
We were warmly and fraternally received and enjoyed the 
well-known "Northern hospitality". Wor. Bro. James John- 
stone, who is 85 years young, now resides in Niagara Falls 
and is the oldest living Past Master of Manito Lodge. He 
was my constant companion on all my official visits. 

I was fortunate in being - able to attend all Divine Serv- 
ices held in the District, with the exception of one. On Sun- 
day. Mav 5th, the Annual District Divine Service was held in 
St. Paul's Anglican Church, Fort Erie. Well over one hundred 
Masons, representing every lodge in the District, were in at- 
tendance. Bro. the Rev. G. Nelson Standish, District Chaplain, 
preached the sermon which gave every Mason in attendance 
room for thought. I also had the distinct honor to present 
two 50 Year Jubilee Medals on two occasions. 

Our Masters' and Wardens' Association of the District 
had a very successful year under the capable guidance of 
Wor. Bro. Llovd C. Russ, President. Our fall meeting was 
held in Macnab Lodge, No. 169, Port Colborne. The guest 
speaker of the evening was Rt. Wor. Bro. J. A. Irvine, De- 
puty Grand Master, who gave an inspiring address which 
was very much appreciated by all the brethren present. 

We of Niagara District "B" feel that our Grand lodge 
has made an excellent choice in our future Grand Master. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1963 129 

Our spring meeting was held in King Edward VII Lodge, 
of Ohippawa, and we were pleased to present Rt. Wor. Bro. 
James H. Bews as our guest speaker. Rt. Wor. Bro. Bews is 
the Business Manager of the Masonic Service Bureau of Buf- 
falo, N.Y., and his message was thoroughly enjoyed by all the 
brethren present. Another highlight of the year was the Re- 
ception given for our Grand Master at the Scottish Rite 
Cathedral, Hamilton, by the brethren of Hamilton Districts 
"A" and "B". It was a privilege for me to be in attendance. 

At my homecoming meeting at Fort Erie Lodge, No. 
613, we were honpred to have Rt. Wor. Bro. B. B. Foster, 
Chairman of Condition of Masonry, in attendance. 

In conclusion, I must take this opportunity to express 
my sincere thanks to the brethren of the District for giving 
me the opportunity to serve as D.D.G.M. for the year 1962-63. 

GERALD R. BROWN, D.D.G.M. 

NIPISSING EAST DISTRICT 

The privilege of serving: as the representative of the 
Grand Master in Nipissing East District has been a reward- 
ing experience, resulting in the renewing of old acquaint- 
ances and the making of many new friends, both for my- 
self and for those who so kindly accompanied me to the var- 
ious lodges. To the brethren who made this possible, I extend 
my sincere thanks. 

I have been ably supported bv Wor. Bro. Henry Sul- 
livan as District Secretarv, Bro. R. Peebles as District Chap- 
lain, Wor. Bro. Wm. ,T. Somerville as Chairman of Masonic 
Education and Wor. Bro. D. G. MacFarlane as Chairman of 
the Blood Donors' Committee. 

Attendant at all lodges on the occasion of my official 
visit was excellent even when the date happened to conflict 
with other interests. My inspections showed that every lodge 
in this District is following the direction of Grand Lodge 
■without exception. The Work was, in most cases, letter per- 
fect and delivered in a manner well-calculated to impress 
the candidate. Our District is fortunate in having dedicated 
and caoable Secretaries in all lodees ensuring that records 
are properly kept and proper procedures are followed. 

T am pleased to report that the Blood Donors' Committee 
was active the past year. Some 30 donors were registered 
and. in addition, many of th° brethren of Temiskamine 
Txvdere. No. 462. are members of a "Living Blood Bank" op- 
erated through the local hospital, 
when the brethren received our Grand Master, M.W Bro. 

A highlight of the year recurred on June 3rd in th° 
banquet room of St. Paul's United Church, New Liskeard, 



130 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

R. W. Treleaven, accompanied by R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, 
Grand Secretary. Our Grand Masters' address will long be 
remembered. Six of our Worshipful Masters were introduced 
to the Grand Master and all the brethren took the oppor- 
tunity of making- his acquaintance. 

Another highlight occurred May 10th in North Bay Lodge, 
No. '617, when the initiatory degree was conferred on Al- 
fred Kenneth Connors in the presence of our Deputy Grand 
Master, R.W. Bro. J. A Irvine. I had the pleasure of acting 
as Master, with all other offices filled by Past District De- 
puty Grand Masters whose skill in putting on the Work 
was outstanding and was an indication of their continuing 
interest in Masonry. R.W. Bro. J. Smorthwaite and the Wor- 
shipful Master. Bro. R. B. Reid, and his committee are to 
be congratulated for the detailed planning and organization 
which made this meeting such a success and certainly the 
highlight of my Masonic career. During the social hour held 
in the banquet hall of the Calvin Presbyterian Church, R.W. 
Bro. J. A. Irvine gave an inspiring address. 

On October 1st. 1962 at Silver Lodge, No. 486, W. Bro. 
Dave Cramp was presented with his Fifty Year Medal. This 
meeting was organized by the late R.W. Bro. A. H. Moss 
who addressed W. Bro. Cramp. Brethren of 14 lodges were 
present. The death of R.W. Bro. A. H. Moss, a few days 
later on October 11th, was a saddening experience for all. 
Only a month previously Silver Lodge lost another beloved 
Mason in R.W. Bro. H. H. Abell. On January 15th. 1963, 
Nipissing Lodge, No. 420. lost R. R. Bro. George William 
Deegan to the Grand Lodge Above. 

I was unable to attend many social gatherings during 
the year but Mrs. Young and I were fortunate in being able 
to attend Ladies' Night of Nipissing Lodge, held at the Gold- 
en Dragon Restaurant on March 15th. This was a gala oc- 
casion with close to two hundred sitting down to dinner. 
Bro. T. A. Friar. Junior Warden, and W. Bro. R. A. Robert- 
son did an excellent job of organizing and supervising this 
event. 

The District Church Parade was held June 9th in Elk 
Lake United Church where the Minister, Bro. R. Peebles, gave 
an excellent sermon to a full congregation. 

I should mention that two of our smaller lodges are 
having some difficulty filling the offices of the lodge due 
to the small local population and lack of permanent employ- 
ment opportunities. Lodge members are continually coming 
and going. Those who carry on deserve extra credit for their 
efforts under trying conditions. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 131 

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all those 
who have given so freely of their time to make my term of 
office a never-to-be-forgotten experience. 

DUNCAN R. YOUNG, D.D.G.M. 



NIPISSING WEST DISTRICT 

May I first express my thanks and gratitude to the 
b v ethren of Nipissing West for honouring Keystone Lodge, 
No. 412, by electing me District Deputy Grand Master, and 
Most Wor. Bro. R. W. Treleaven for confirming the elec- 
tion. It was indeed a great honour and privilege to carry out 
the duties to the best of my ability. 

Among the highlights of the year were three receptions 
to honour the Grand Master, Most Wor. Bro. R. W. Tre- 
leaven, the first, sponsored by the Past Masters' Associa- 
tion of Sudbury, the second by Doric and Gore Bay Lodges 
at Mindemoya, Manitoulin Island, and the third by the three 
Craft lodges in Sault Ste. Marie. Overflow crowds were 
present to honour our distinguished guest. 

My first official duty was to appoint Wor. Bro. Edison 
Danby of Keystone Lodge, as District Secretary, and Bro. 
Rev. Graham Tipple as District Chaplain. Wor. Bro. Danby 
accompanied me on fourteen official visits and reported that 
the Secretaries of all lodges were carrying out their duties 
satisfactorily in most cases. Some lodges had excellent sys- 
tems of records, while others were able to account for all 
matters, but each in their own individual way. Some Secre- 
taries were quite efficient and were striving to improve, 
while others continued in the same manner and system as 
their predecessors. In one or two instances improvements 
could be made and these were pointed out to the Secretaries 
concerned. One lodge did not have records available for in- 
spection. At all official visits, except one, degree work was 
exemplified and in most cases the work was above aver- 
age. Wor. Bro. Danby made my office very easy and enjoy- 
able. 

Each lodge was inspected concerning the questionnaire 
on Fire Safety. Whatever items were lacking, such as fire 
escapes, proper exit signs, fire extinguishers, door hardware, 
etc., were pointed out to the Lodge Secretary. 

Wor. Bro. Fred Niemi, Algoma Lodge, No. 469, kindly- 
accepted the chairmanship of Masonic Education. All ma- 
terial received from Rt. Wor. Bro. Wm. Bailey was distrib- 
uted throughout the District immediately. 



132 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNCATION 

Two schools of instruction, were held during the year, 
one in Sudbury, April 27, with an attendance of 85, and the 
other in Sault Ste. Marie, May 4, with an attendance of 
62. Rt. Wor. Bro. J. B. Sainsbury acted as Worshipful 
Master. I am sure the degree work will be more uniform in 
the years to come. My sincere thanks go to Wor. Bro. Niemi 
for carrying out his duties so efficiently. 

At the district meeting held during Grand Lodge Com- 
munication, 1962, the matter of dividing the District was 
discussed. Some felt that the District was unwieldy as to 
administration and long mileage for the District Deputy. 
The following motion was carried, "That each lodge make 
an appropriate study of this matter of dividing the Dis- 
trict, and, when arriving at a decision, that each lodge notify 
their findings to the D.D.G.M., and that this be done before 
the end of the calendar year". A letter of explanation with 
an attached ballot was forwarded to each lodge on Febru- 
ary 25, 1963, the ballot to be returned by April 15, 1963. 
Following is the result: favourable (10) ; opposed (4) ; no re- 
ply (3). 

Wor. Bro. Wm. Noble, Nickel Lodge, No. 427, kindly 
accepted the chairmanship of Blood Donors' Committee and 
I am pleased to report that sixteen lodges provided a total 
of 639 as compared to 280, a gain of 359 over last year. I 
extend my sincere thanks to Wor. Bro. Noble. 

I regret to report the recent loss, by fire, of the lodge 
premises of Dyment Lodge, No. 442, Thessalon. Through the 
co-operation of the brethren in Sault Ste. Marie, Dyment 
Lodge will meet there until they rebuild. 

A. Y. BROUGHTON, DJD.G.M. 



NORTH HURON DISTRICT 

It has been a great honour to have been the representa- 
tive of the Grand Master in North Huron District. It has 
been a rewarding year in which I have made many acquaint- 
ances that have developed into warm friendships. 

As the D.D.GM.'s of South Huron and Bruce Districts 
are of equal distance from me, we had a great opportunity 
to visit each other on different occasions and I value their 
friendship greatly. 

I visited the twelve lodges in my District and found 
Masonry on a very high level, with the work well put on, 
leaving, I feel, the various candidates with a feeling of hav- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 133 

ing become part of a great brotherhood, and with a desire 
to further their knowledge. 

I must commend my Secretary, Wor. Bro. Ray Bron- 
son, on his great help to me this year. He attended every 
meeting with me and looked after every detail. I was very 
pleased to have Bro. Capt. Stanley Newman of Wingham 
Lodge, as my District Chaplain. He has been a great help 
to me. Rt. Wor. Bro. D. Philip was my Chairman of Blood 
Donations, and my immediate predecessor, Rt. Wro. Bro. 
John L. MacKinnon, was Chairman of Masonic Education. 
To these brethren, I convey my sincere thanks and apprec- 
iation. 

Owing to the severe winter that we had in this Dis- 
trict, we found it impossible to hold a Lodge of Instruction 
for which I was sorry. 

Most of the Lodges held a Divine Service. I attended 
some of them, but found it impossible to attend them all. 
The District Divine Service was held in Melville Presbyter- 
ian Church, Brussels, with my Chaplain, Bro. Capt. Newman, 
the speaker and the choral music by the Speed Lodge 
Choir of Guelph. 

I presented three brethren from Northern Light Lodge, 
Kincardine, with their Fifty Year Medals and assisted in 
the presentation of two medals to two brethren of Tees- 
water Lodge in Teeswater along with a Life Membership 
to the third member. 

This not being the year for the visit of the Grand 
Master to my District I. in turn, had many happy associa- 
tions with him in Gait, Ottawa, London. Clifford and Ham- 
ilton. It was a distinct pleasure to listen to our Grand 
Master and to learn from his words of wisdom. 

A number of lodges held Ladies' Nights and Mrs. 
Krauter and I had the privilege of attending a number of 
them, which we thoroughly enjoyed. A highlight was a 
Ladies' Night by the Past Masters' Masters' and Wardens' 
Associations, when I made the acquaintance of Rt. Wor. 
Bro. Dr. Flath who was the sr>eaker. He is a grand man 
and one who I am glad to call friend. 

The Past Masters'. Masters' and Wardens' Association 
held a night to honour Dr. Fraser Hav in Listowel, as the 
Most Ex. Grand First Principal of the Grand Chapter RA.M. 
in Ontario, and I had the pleasure of presenting him with 
his regalia as the Grand Junior Deacon of our Grand Lodge. 
It was a gala night and Very Wor. Bro. Hay gave us a 
very inspiring address. 



134 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 



In conclusion, I would like to thank my home lodge, 
St. John's, 284, North Huron District and you. Most Wor. 
Sir, for giving me the opportunity to serve as D.D.G.M. It 
is an experience I shall always cherish and I wish for my 
successor the same loyal support I have received. 

J. CALVIN KRATJTER, D.D.G.M. 



ONTARIO DISTRICT 

It has been a wonderful experience and a great honor to 
represent the Grand Master in Ontario District. I will ever 
be indebted to Fidelity Lodge, No. 428, for nominating me 
and to the District for .my acclamation to this office which 
is so rightfully held in such high esteem. 

Each of the fifteen lodges in the District were visited 
officially and I am happy to note that all the Worshipful 
Masters appear to be dedicated and very efficient, and the 
quality of the other officers throughout the District in- 
dicates that Masonry in Ontario District is in good hands 
for some years to come. 

Early in the Masonic year, on September 27th, Ontario 
District was honored by a personal visit by our Grand 
Master, M.W. Bro. R. W. Treleaven. on the occasion of the 
consecrating and constituting of The David T. Campbell 
Lodge, No. 706, at Whitby. 

It was a pleasure to appoint as my District Secretary, 
Wor. Bro. Noman W. Heayn, whose devotion to Masonry 
is so well-appreciated by his fellow members of Fidelity 
Lodge, No. 428. He accompanied me on all my official visits 
and carried out his duties with thoroughness and dispatch. 
Bro. The Rev. Claude C. Gilbert consented to be District 
Chaplain and he was an inspiration to all who met him. V. 
Wor. Bro. Grant Gerrow did an excellent job as Chairman of 
the District Blood Donors' Committee, and Wor. Bro. Clin- 
ton Midgley acted as Supervisor of Masonic Education. 

I enioyed visits into Toronto Districts 3 and 4, Pet- 
erborough, Prince Edward and Grey Districts. On two oc- 
casions I visited our beautiful Grand Lodge Offices at 
Hamilton and I am grateful to R. Wor. Geo. J. McQueen 
and his staff for their co-operation in my search for his- 
torical data. 

I was fortunate this vear in that Ontario District 
provided the Grand Junior Warden in the person of R. Wor. 
Bro. Thomas L. Wilson. His considerations for me will ever 



TORONTO, ONTARIO 1963 135 

be appreciated and his services to this Grand Lodge jur- 
isdiction in particular will always be an inspiration to those 
who were privileged to know and work with him. 

Ontario District was saddened by the passing to the 
Grand Lodge Above of two Past Grand Lodge Officers in 
the persons of R. Wor. Bro. Matthew N. Jackson, Temple 
Lodge No. 649, and V. Wor. Bro. Lome Plummer, Ontario 
Lodge No. 26. 

Highlights of my year included attendance at the con- 
stituting and consecrating of Universe Lodge, No. 705, at 
Markham by M. Wor. Bro. J. A. Hearn. Past Grand Master: 
The reception and dinner in honor of our Grand Chaplain, 
R. Wor. Bro. Venerable Archdeacon Creesrgan, held at The 
Belleville Lodge. No. 123: The Ladies' Night sponsored by 
my own Fidelity Lodge at which the Lieutenant-Governor 
of Ontario, Bro. The Honourable J. Keiller MacKay was 
the guest speaker: Past Masters' Night at Lebanon Lodge, 
No. 139. when the guest of honor was the Vice-President 
of the Board of General Purposes, R. Wor. Bro. Hon. James 
N. Allan. Treasurer of the Province of Ontario: the cen- 
tennial dinner at Peterborough Lodge No. 155, Peterbor- 
ough, which was graced by the presence of our Grand 
Master. M. Wor. Bro. R. W. Treleaven. 

At all times I was received with great warmth and 
friendship, and the courtesies shown to my wife when we 
attended the many Ladies' Nights' were greatly appreciated. 

WILLIAM J. CARNEGIE, D.D.G.M. 



OTTAWA DISTRICT 

It is with a great deal of pride and satisfaction that I 
report a very successful year. There have been no major 
problems during the year and Freemasonry appears to be 
in a very prosperous condition in the Ottawa District. 

One of my first duties was the appointment of Wor. 
Brjo. G. W. Griffith as District Secretary. This proved to 
be a very fortunate choice as Wor. Bro. Griffith fulfilled the 
duties of Secretary in a very capable manner and was most 
faithful in accompanying me on the many long trips during 
my official tour. Wor. Bro. James McKinney was appointed 
District Director of Masonic Education; Wor. Bro. Robert 
Taylor, as Chairman of the Blood Donors' Committee; and 
Bro. (Rev.) John A. Salter, as District Chaplain. All of 
these brethren performed their duties in a very efficient 
manner and were of great assistance to me. 



136 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

A meeting was held in Ottawa, early in September, for 
the purpose of instructing the Masters of the lodges and 
the District Officers. The information received from Most 
Wor. Bro. H. L. Martyn, Custodian of the Work, at our 
meeting in Brockville, was passed on for their guidance and 
proved very valuable as the year progressed. I was im- 
pressed at the outset with the respect with which Grand 
Lodge was held and with their genuine desire to be of service 
to the Craft. 

I visited each of the 29 lodges in the District and 
spoke to well over 3500 Masons. Such matters as Fire Pre- 
vention; Changes in Benevolent Fund, Grand Lodge Lib- 
rary, etc., were discussed during the social hours after the 
lodge meetings. A few lodges were visited on two or more 
occasions but it is regretted that time and distance would 
not permit too many return visits. There is no hesitancy 
in reporting to you that the work, in this District, is of a 
very high standard and the fraternal feeling, as displayed 
by the brethren, is absolutely wonderful. All lodges appear 
to be in sound financial condition and books and records 
are kept in good order. Most lodges have made an effort 
to improve the condition of their property and it is felt that 
the Fire Report should be an annual event. 

A committee, under the able chairmanship of Rt. Wor. 
Bro. Howard Carkner, was appointed to study the Grand 
Master's Report (1962) and to ascertain if any adverse con- 
ditions were affecting Masonry in the Ottawa District. The 
Committee reported on Membership; Attendance; Social Ac- 
tivities, etc.. and made several recommendations towards 
improving these conditions. It also suggested ways and 
means of improving the District Organization. The Carkner 
Report has now been submitted to a committee for further 
study and recommendations. 

It was suggested, at the District Meeting held in Arn- 
prior on April 30th., that the District Deputy Grand Master 
recommend to Grand Lodge, that, with the contemplated 
changes in the Benevolent Fund, consideration be given 
to include bursaries for the Ottawa Music Festival. 

The size of the Ottawa District has been discussed 
over a period of years; it has been noted that my pre- 
decessor suggested the splitting of the District. It is recom- 
mended that any thought in this direction be aoproached 
with extreme caution. It would be so easy to wind up with 
one very strong- district and one pitifully weak one. How- 
ever, in the meantime, it is suggested that the interests of 
Grand Lodge would be best served bv making additional 
Grand Lodge appointment? to Ottawa District. In this con- 
nection. Grand Lodge has been represented bv a very small 
group of Past Grand Lodge Officers. Their interest in 
Masonry in this District has been a source of inspiration 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 137 

to all, but as the years come on the distance to be travelled 

becomes increasingly long - and unless this group can be 

supplemented substantially they must fail in their en- 
deavour. 

The highlight of the year was the visit of the Most Wor. 
The Grand Master to the Ottawa District. His kindness and 
inspiring address were the topic of many discussions dur- 
ing the winter months. The brethren of the Ottawa Dis- 
trict join with me in wishing him continued health and 
happiness. 

District Divine Services were held in Ottawa jmd in 
Renfrew, in addition to the Services held by the individual 
lodges. The attendance at the District Services leaves a lot 
to be desired. 

Reports on Masonic Education and on Blood Donors 
have been submitted and will, no doubt, be included in 
the consolidated report. I will, therefore, only express my 
appreciation to Wor. Bros. McKinney and Taylor for their 
efforts in this regard. 

The kindness and consideration shown to my wife and 
to myself at the many social functions and Ladies' Nights 
will long be remembered. We both thoroughly enjoyed our- 
selves on these occasions. 

To the Most Wor. the Grand Master, I extend my sin- 
cere thanks for the privilege of serving as his representa- 
tive in this District. It is felt that I have, this year, taken 
far more out of Masonry than I have given or shall ever 
be able to repav. To the District Committees, to my Secre- 
tary, to the Masters and Secretaries of the lodges and. 
especiallv, to that faithful group of Past Grand Lodge Of- 
ficers, who were such a source of inspiration and assistance, 
my heartfelt thanks. 

This report would not be comnlete without an expres- 
sion of thanks to Rt. Wor. Brn. E. G. Dixon. Grand Sec- 
retary, Most Wor. Bro. H. L. Martyn. and all the Officers 
of Grand Lodge. It was most comforting to know that there 
was such a fund of knowledge and support if it were re- 
quired. 

As my term of office draws to a close, and as I lav 
aside the mantle of responsibility, it is my fondest hope 
that Freemasonry will continue to flourish in Ottawa Dis- 
trict and in our Grand Jurisdiction and perhaps, at some 
further date. I mav asrain be afforded the privilege of being 
of service to our Craft. 

V. M. POLAND, D.D.G.M 



138 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

PETERBOROUGH DISTRICT 

The privilege of serving as the representative of the 
Most Worshipful the Grand Master in Peterborough District 
is an honour for which I am sincerely grateful and appreci- 
ative. I extend thanks to my brethren of Corinthian Lodge, 
No. 101, in particular, and the brethren of Peterborough Dis- 
trict, in general, for electing me to serve in this capacity 
and to the Grand Master for confirming my election. 

Embarking on my official duties I appointed W. Bro. 
M. N. Clysdale as District Secretary, Bro. Rev. Q, S. Maxwell, 
D.D., as District Chaplain, W. Bro. A. Heesom as Superinten- 
dent of Masonic Education and R.W. Bro. C J. Ray as Super- 
intendent of Blood Donors. This impressive array of Masonic 
talent was assurance that their various responsibilities 
would be discharged with efficiency and I am deeply grate- 
ful for their loyalty and support. 

My first official duty resulted from an invitation from 
J. B. Hall Lodge, No. 145, Millbrook, to present a 50 Year 
Medal to Bro. W. G. Sanderson, a very happy occasion in- 
deed. 

Each of the twelve lodges comprising Peterborough 
District was officially visited. On every occasion I was re- 
ceived with real warmth and cordiality; appropriate honours 
were duly accorded and it is a pleasure to report that the 
work throughout the District is generally of a very high or- 
der. The District Secretary examined the books and records. 
A'll were in very satisfactory condition and there was no 
instance where it was judged that even constructive critic- 
ism was warranted or needed. 

I cannot emphasize too much the benefits this Dis- 
trict derived from the information and instructions given 
to the District Deputy Grand Masters by M.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn, Custodian of the Work, as he met with us in small 
groups throughout the Province. Following our meeting 
with him I called together the Masters and Senior Wardens 
that they might have the benefit of this knowledge and put 
it to work in their respective lodges. This information was 
eagerly received and the work throughout the District as- 
sumed a uniformity that would not, otherwise, be possible. 

Masonic Education is in extensive use throughout the 
District. W. Bro. Heesom gave goiod direction and assist- 
ance by distributing the material sent from Grand Lodge 
and by originating some on his own. 

The Red Cross has an excellent Blood Donor service in this 
area but previously there had been no record of donations 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1963 139 

by Masons. R.W. Bro. C. J. Rav has done a fine job of 
creating interest in the various lodges to the extent that 
some have set up card systems and are not only encourag- 
ing the brethren to record their donations, as Masons, but 
are seeking to add new donors. We have many brethren 
with excellent donor records. One brother has given over 70 
donations and a picture, taken two years ago of 23 per- 
sons who had given 50 donations, included 6 who were mem- 
bers of the Craft. The program is well off the ground. Pet- 
erborough District should, in the near future, have a blood 
donor record of the first order. 

Mrs. Bantie and I were pleased to accept the invitation 
of the brethren of Clementi Lodge. Lakefield. to join with 
them on their annual "Ladies' Night" and, also, the invita- 
tion to join the receiving line for the Peterborough Ward- 
ens' Association's annual "At Home". 

I represented the Grand Master at the Peterborough 
Roval Arch Masons reception held in honour of their leader, 
M.Ex. Gamp. C. W. Emmett, and to reply to the toast to 
Grand Lodge on his behalf. 

A highlight of the year was the celebration of the One 
Hundredth Anniversary of Peterborough Lodere. No. 155. held 
on Anril 6, 1063, in the Masonic Temple at Peterborough, at 
which I was privileged to act as Chairman. Some 225 
brethren tethered around the banquet table to extend their 
congratulations and to nay tribute to M. Wor. Bro. R. W. 
Trpleaven. icur beloved Grand Master who. as guest speaker, 
endeared himself to all orecent. R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, 
Gra^d Secretary, and R.W. Bro. T. L. Wilson. Grand Jun- 
ior Warden, accompanied the Grand Master and exchanged 
fraternal greetings with a host of friends. 

On April 17, William James Dunlop Lodge. No. 675. was 
host to a decree team composed of the Worshinful Masters 
of the District -with their own Master, W. Bro. Geddes 
Harper, presiding. This is an annual event in our District 
in which there is real merit. We find that bringing the 
Mn<=ters into close association results in a considerable in- 
crease in lodge visitations and exchange of work. 

I attended the consecration of The David T. Cajnpbell 
Lodere in Whitby (Ontario District") and several "special" 
nights throughout Peterborough District. On Anril 10. I 
occupied the chair of King Solomon in Corinthian Lodge 
and conferred the E.A. Degree with a degree team com- 
posed entirely of Past District Deputy Grand Masters of this 
District. This opportunity which afforded the P.D.D.G.M's of 
the District to work as a unit, in full regalia, forms a con- 
tinuing bond that is of real value to the welfare of the 
fraternity. 



140 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 



Throughout my visits I stressed uniformity of the work, 
benevolence, fire regulations, Masonic education, blood dona- 
tions and visitations. The brethren responded splendidly. 
At the annual District Meeting of Masters, Past Masters 
and Wardens in May there was an unusual number of visita- 
tions between lodges recorded, with the visiting brethren 
conferring the degree or, as was often the case, the larger 
lodge bringing a candidate for their less fortunate brethren 
to confer a degree upon. 

On May 5th the District Divine .Service was held in 
Trinity United Church, Peterborough, with the District 
Chaplain, Bro. Rev. Gordon S. Maxwell, D.D., conducting the 
Service and the District Deputy Grand Master reading the 
Scriptures. As is his custom, Bro. Maxwell delivered an in- 
spiring sermon ty> a representative congregation of brethren 
of the District. 

On May 9. we held a Lodse of Instruction, sponsored 
by Corinthian Lodge, No. 101. No degree was conferred but 
we opened and closed in all three degrees so that I might 
have the opportunity of explaining the accepted -procedure, as 
directed bv the Custodian of the Work, to be adopted in the 
various instances where variations tend to creep in. 

My official visits concluded at J. B. Hall Lodge, where 
the well-known hospitality of the Millbrook brethren re- 
sulted in the largest gathering ever to. meet in their lodge. 
It was a grand climax to a most enjoyable and heart warm- 
ing year. 

All in all, the welfare of the Craft is in good hands in 
Peterborough District and I am deeply grateful to the breth- 
ren for making this year a memory which I will always 
cherish and, no doubt, fondly reflect upon. 

H. A. BAPTIE, D.D GLM. 



PRINCE EDWARD DISTRICT 

I am pleased to submit my report on the Condition of 
Masonry in Prince Edward District. 

To have had the honour and privilege of acting as the 
representative of the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, 
has been a most rewarding experience. To the brethren who 
made this possible, I extend my heartfelt thanks. 

I was pleased to appoint Wor. Bro. Thomas G. Bowen 
as District Secretary, and Wor. Bro. Bruce Huyck as Dis- 
trict Chaplain. Rt. Wor. Bro. Harry G. Bates was prevailed 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 141 

upon to act as District Supervisor of Masonic Education, and 
filled the office in his usual efficient manner. The District 
Chairman of Blood Donors was Wor. Bro. Percy Van Vlack. 

I visited all of the lodges in the District at least once, 
and many of them on other occasions. I was received most 
cordially and treated royally. With one or two exceptions, I 
found the lodges to be doing excellent work. Where the 
work was not of such a high calibre, I met with the principal 
officers later to discuss the problem. 

The Wor. Masters of the District are, I feel, a very 
sincere, enthusiastic group, and are doing a good job pro- 
viding inspiration and leadership to their lodges. 

The Past Masters', Masters', and Wardens' Association 
is doing an excellent job of promoting Masonry in the Dis- 
trict under a very fine group of officers headed by Wor. 
Bro. Percy Kerr. 

On November 22, a dinner was held in the Masonic 
Temple, Belleville, in honour of the Grand Chaplain, Rt. 
Wor. Bro. The Venerable Archdeacon J. B. Creeggan. The 
banquet room was filled for the dinner, and at the lodge 
meeting held late in the evening Rt. Wor. Bro. Creeggan 
was presented with his regalia. 

Prince Edward District was honoured to receive the 
Grand Master at a dinner meeting in the Belleville Temple 
on April 15th. About 200 Masons assembled to do him hon- 
our, and to hear his excellent address. The number of Grand 
Lodge Officers who accompanied him was indicative of the 
esteem and affection which the brethren have for our Grand 
Master. 

I was called upon to present a number of medals, 
among which was a. 60 Year Past Master's Pin to V.W. 
Bro. Wm. Connor of Madoc Lodge, No. 48. V.W. Bro. Connor 
was W.M. in 1902 and is still active in his lodge. 

On May 5. about 300 Masons attended a District Divine 
Service at Christ Church, Belleville. The speaker was Rt. 
Wor. Bro. Creeggan, the Grand Chaplain, and a former 
Rector of Christ Church. 

It was my happy experience to visit in four other Dis- 
tricts during the year. One of these visits was to Niagara 
District "A". It being the occasion of the annual reunion 
of the Temple Lodges. I am indebted to the members of 
Temple Lodge, No. 666. Belleville, for the opportunity of 
being present on this happy occasion. 

Mrs. Portt and I have been very happy to attend a 
number of "Ladies' Nights" during my term of office. We 



142 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

have been made most welcome, and have enjoyed the op- 
portunity of associating with the Masons and their wives. 
To these lodges we say a sincere "thank you", and to those 
whose invitations we were forced to decline, we offer our 
apologies. 

On May 7th, I paid my official visit to my Mother 
Lodge. Craig, No. 401, at Deseronto. Over 200 members 
and visitors were present at the banquet hour, and the lodge 
room was filled to overflowing during the meeting later. 
The Past Masters of Craig Lodge presented me with a Past 
Master's Jewel on this occasion, and had arranged for my 
wife to be present at the banquet when the presentation 
was made. It was very gratifying to me to be accompanied 
on that occasion by Rt. Wor. Bro. Kenneth Ham, D.D.G.M., 
of Frontenac District, and by Rt. Wor. Bro. William Carn- 
egie of Ontario District. 

In conclusion, may I say that I feel that Freemasonry 
in Prince Edward District is in a healthy condition, and may 
I take this opportunity of expressing to each and every one 
who helped make the duties of this office so very pleasant, 
a sincere "thank you". 

BRUCE E. PORTT, D.D.G.M. 



SARNIA DISTRICT 

It is with pleasure that I submit my report on the Con- 
dition of Masonry in Sarnia District, and with sincere hu- 
mility that I express my apprecation to the brethren for 
their confidence in electing me as their D.D.G.M.. and to you, 
Most Worshipful Sir, for confirming the same. 

The appointment of W. Bro. Peter C. McPhedran as 
District Secretary was a great pleasure for me. He fulfilled 
the duties of his office with enthusiasm that merited the 
high regard that both his brethren and I of Washington 
Lodge have for him; he has certainlv won for himself the 
esteem of the brethren in Sarnia District. 

As Supervisor of Masonic Education. R.W. Bro. Harry 
Russell was appointed, and fulfilled his duties in a capable 
manner. Also, at the request of several lodges, he arranged 
for speakers on Masonic Education. 

Being a member of St. Paul's United Church I was very 
pleased that the Pastor, Bro. Rev. Ralph LeDrew, consented 
to act as District Chaplain. Bro. LeDrew gave freely of his 
time and talents as far as his pastoral duties would allow. 
He spoke at several of the meetings, stressing the close re- 
lationship of Masonry with the Church. 



TORONTO ONTARIO, 1963 143 

Although the number of Blood Donors was not as great 
as expected, due to several blood banks being filled, the 
duties of the Chairman of the Committee were conscientiously 
performed by Bro. William Johnston of Washington Lodge, 
No. 260. 

At the Fall Meeting of the Past Masters' and Wardens' 
Association of Sarnia District in Beaver Lodge, No. 83, 
Strathroy, a Lodge of Instruction was held on October 30th, 
1962. At their January meeting the Master Mason Degree 
was conferred on a member of Victoria Lodge, No. 56, by 
the Past and Present Grand Lod"e Stewards in an excel- 
lent manner. Washington Lodge, No. 260, hosted the As- 
sociation on May 29th with the Cuest Speaker, R.W. Bro. 
J. Talman, Chairman lof Fraternal Reviews for Grand Lodere, 
giving an enlightening discourse of his Committee which 
was well-received. 

At mv official inspections of the twenty-one lodges, de- 
gree work was witnessed, generally well-presented and uni- 
form, with the junior members taking an active part in 
assisting the officers of the lodges. Tn general the keen in- 
terest with which the Master and officers of all lodges re- 
gard their Masonic duties would indicate that Masonry 
in Sarnia District is on a firm basis. The warm and cour- 
teous reception accorded me at each inspection reflected the 
high esteem in which the Grand Master and Grand Lodge is 
held. 

I would respectfully suggest that some consideration 
be given to the forming of a new lodge in the City o<f 
Sarnia. I feel that it would afford more members of the 
Craft an opportunity of advancement, also that it would 
create mo r e interest and heln attendance. The District 
Secretary found all lodge records in satisfactory condition. 
but I am sorry to report a loss of twenty-two in membership. 

Many of the lodges held Ladies' Nights, many of which 
Mrs. Karr and I, accomoanied bv the District Secretary, W. 
Bro. McPhedran, and Mrs. McPhedran. were able to attend. 
We are most grateful for the courtesies accorded to us. 

I am very pleased to report all lodges held Divine 
Church Services, practically all of which T was able to 
attend. The District Divine Service was held in St Paul's 
United Church, Petrolia. on June 2nd., with the District 
Chaplain selecting the "Accent of Masonry", as the subject 
for his Sermon. This Service was largely attended bv th° 
brethren of the District, every lodge being well -represented. 

Manv Senior Masons were honoured by presentations 
of Grand Lodge awards. Due to previous commitments. I 
was unable to attend all of these presentations. 



144 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

St. Paul Lodge, No. 601, on March 13, 1963, presented 
V.W. Bro. W. E Germain with the Seventy Year Bar, the 
sixth member of the Grand Lodge of Canada, in the Prov- 
ince of Ontario to receive it. Bro. Ernest J. Wright re- 
ceived the Sixty Year Pin for his Veteran Jubilee Medal. 
Ten other Veteran Jubilee Medals were presented in the 
District. On June 12th, Forest Lodge, No. 263, has requested 
me to present a Past Master, W. Bro. C. E. Janes, with 
the Long Service Medal. 

I was present at the London and Ridge town Receptions 
honoring the Grand Master; both were enjoyable evenings. 
On April 17th, Rt. Wor. Bro. John A. Irvine was guest 
speaker at a dinner in Tuscan Lodge, No. 437. and later 
presented the Veteran Jubilee Medal to his friend, Bro. 
Wm. Carson, a 33 degree Mason. 

Sarnia District suffered the loss of two Past District 
Secretaries this year as well as a number of brethren. 
Though they are gone, their memory lingers with us. 

The brethren of Washington Lodge, No. 260, held a re- 
ception in my honour on April 24th. The Rt. Wor. Bro. 
Bruce Foster was speaker for the evening. It was gratify- 
ing to» me to have so many of the district brethren present. 
Several of the neighboring D.D.G.M's and I were able to 
interchange visits, thereby increasing the joy and fellowship 
of Masonry. 

In conclusion, I wish for my successor the fine loyal 
support given to me by the brethren of Sarnia District. 

MELVIN J. KARR, D.D.G.M. 



SOUTH HURON DISTRICT 

It has indeed been an honour to serve as the repre- 
sentative of the Grand Master in South Huron District 
during the Masonic year of 1962-63 and I shall always cher- 
ish the memories. I would like to express my sincere ap- 
preciation to the Past Masters and Wardens of South Huron 
for this honour which they have conferred on Britannia 
Lodge, No. 170. Seaforth, as well as on myself, and the 
Grand Master who confirmed my election. 

I officially visited the 17 lodges in my District and 
found the work was exceptionally well-done. Besides my 
official visits I made as many other fraternal visits as pos- 
sible. I was also called on to present three 50 Year Medals 
and one 50 Year Past Master's Medal. These meetings 
were all well-attended with attendance in some going over 
the 100 mark. I also visited with six of my neighboring 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 146 

District Deputy Grand Masters on several occasions when 
we had some very instructive, interesting and friendly 
meeting's together. These visits have meant much to me 
and the friends one makes will last through the years. 

The Past Masters' Association has always been a great 
assistance to our District by sponsoring a fall educational 
night which was held in Mitchell this year and R. Wor. 
Bro. Win. Prentice, Past G.S.W., spoke on Masonic History 
which was followed by a panel discussion. A list of inter- 
lodge visitations is always sent out each year and does a 
great deal to promote visits between the lodges in South 
Huron. Last, but not least, the Past Masters' Association 
laid the groundwork for a District Ladies' Night, which was 
this year held in Seaforth and about 350 Masons and their 
ladies attended the banquet which was followed by a dance. 
The Guest Speaker was R. Wor. Bro. Hon. James N. Allan, 
who gave us an inspiring address and left us with consider- 
able food for thought. 

I would like to pay tribute to the Committee on Masonic 
Education under the Chairmanship of Wor. Bro. R. Bradford, 
who prepared two excellent articles which they sent out to 
all the lodges and I hope they will continue the series which 
they have started. Most of the lodges try to have a short 
talk on Masonic Education each meeting and some have 
devoted full evenings when they are not rushed with de- 
grees. 

Mrs. Reith and I did so appreciate the many invita- 
tions to attend the Ladies' Nights in the District, but were 
sorry we could not attend them all, as. unfortunately, some 
of them fell on the same evening. We were always given 
such a warm welcome and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. 

I would like to thank all the lodges for the warm 
welcome I received on all of my visits and for th« full co- 
operation from everyione and for the great spirit which pre- 
vails throughout this District. 

Those who added so much to my visits and work in 
the District this year were the officers who assisted me; 
Wor. Bro. Jas. MacDonald, my District Secretary, who very 
capably carried out his duties and accompanied me on my 
visits; Rev. Bro. J. Cliff Britton, mv District Chaplain, who 
travelled with me on most of mv visits and was always so 
ready to help me at all times; Wor. Bro. R. Bradford, Dis- 
trict Chairman of Masonic Education, and Rt. Wor. Bro. 
Earle Tapp, District Chairman of Blocd Donors. With men 
such as these you were never wanting for support and en- 
couragement. 

Most of the lodges have their own annual Church 
Services, several of which I had the pleasure of attending. 



146 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Our District Service which was held this year in First 
Presbyterian Church, Seaforth, had an exceptionally fine 
turn-out of over 150 Masons plus their wives and families. 
The Service was conducted by Rev. Douglas O. Fry and 
our District Chaplain, Rev. Bro. Cliff. Britton, spoke on "The 
Marks of a Master builder", which was well-received by the 
brethren. After the Service a lunch was served and a friendly 
hour was enjoyed by all. 

As I visited the lodges I tried to create an interest in 
Masonry, and I do hope that, in my small humble way, I 
have been able to contribute something for the good of 
Masonry in South Huron District. 

C. A. REITH, D.D.G.M. 



ST. LAWRENCE DISTRICT 

It has been a great pleasure and privilege to have had 
the honor of serving as the representative of the Grand 
Master in St. Lawrence District, and I hope I have con- 
tributed in some small way to the advancement of Masonry 
in the District. 

On my return from Grand Lodge my first duty was 
to appoint Wor. Bro. Ernest B. Dangerfield of Mount Zion 
Lodge, No. 28. as my District Secretary; also Bro. Rev. 
Stanley Kerrison as District Chaplain; and Wor. Bro. Gerald 
Gilmer as District Chairman of Masonic Education. I also 
appointed Wor. Bro. Ben Steck as District Chairman of the 
Blood Donors' Committee. They have performed their several 
duties in a most satisfactory manner. 

I visited each lodge once officiallv during the year. At 
all visits I was received as befitting the dignity of the rep- 
resentative of the Grand Master. At all meetings but two 
a degree was conferred and the work of the officers was 
excellent. We have a lot of young men filling the offices in 
the lodges in the District. All are doing giood work and are 
striving to uphold the best traditions of Masonry. At all 
meetings I was accompanied bv the District Secretary who 
performed his duties with great care and courtesy. 

The Secretaries of all the lodges have been most co-op- 
erative and are doing good work. Their books are well-kept 
and outstanding dues are keot at a satisfactory level. Five 
of the lodges have past D.D.G.M.'s for their Secretaries. 

The highlieht of my vear was Oct. 29th, 1962. when 
St. Lawrence District V>ad ^ a gr^at honour of receiving our 
Grand Master, Most Wor. Bro. Russell W. Treleaven, at a 
testimonial dinner in Smiths Falls, a night we will long 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 147 

remember. The address of our Grand Master was of great 
importance to the Masons in the District and the ledges wete 
well-represented. I want to thank all those who worked so 
hard to make this a memorable occasion. 

I was called on to present several 50 Year Medals to 
our senior members, also one 60 Year Pin. It is very gratify- 
ing to see so many of our members who are permitted to 
wear this Medal. 

Most of the lodges in this District hold annual Ladies' 
Nights; these are well-attended and much enjoyed. Mrs. 
Beckett and I had the pleasure of attending a number of 
them and enjoyed them very much. 

Wor. Bro. Steck has worked hard to have as many 
Masons in the District as possible donate blood to the Red 
Cross but it is not a very rewarding task, as a lot of our 
members either do not want to or do not take .the trouble 
to report to their lodge Chairman or Secretary and it is dif- 
ficult to keep a proper check. 

Masonic Education was again under the able leadership 
of Wor. Bro. Gerald Gilmer who has worked hard to promote 
this very worthy undertaking. It was carried on at the lodge 
level and is beginning to show good results, especially in 
lodges that did not have too much degree work, a good part 
of the meeting was spent in this rewarding work. 

I have stressed fire hazards in the lodges that had 
them and I am haopy to state that a lot of improvements 
have been made. The safety of the members should be the 
first consideration of all kxdges. 

A goodly number have joined our ranks this year and 
with suspensions at a minimum I am looking for an increase 
over last year. 

We mourn the passing of a number of our brethren to 
the Grand Lodge Above. Mav they rest from their labors. 
One I would like to mention is Bro. Rev. C. K. Mathew=,on, 
holder of the William Mercer Wilson Medal, and four times 
District Chaplain. We extend to all their Loved ones our 
deepest sympathy. 

The District Divine Service was held on Sundav. May 
26th. in St. James Anglican Church, Kemptville. The Rector, 
who is our District Chaplain. Rev. Stanley Kerrison. conduct- 
ed the Service and preached a very inspiring sermon. Some 
300 Masons were in attendance. 

I would like to thank all the Masters. Past Masters and 
Wardens of St. Lawrence for electing me to this high and 



148 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

important office and you, Most Wior. Sir, for confirming the 
same. May the blessing of the Most High rest upon us all> 
so that we may be enabled to continue to promote Masonry in 
this District in all its high ideals. 

CECIL D. BECKETT, D.D.G.M. 



ST. THOMAS DISTRICT 

I would like to express my sincere appreciation and 
humble thanks for the privilege of representing the Grand 
Master in St. Thomas District through 1962 and 1963, to you 
Most Worshipful Sir, to my mother lodge, St. David's, Ni». 
302, and to the brethren of St. Thomas District. While I 
appreciated the honour that was bestowed upon me, I was 
deeply conscious of the responsibilities of the office. I have 
done my best to uphold the dignity of the Craft and to 
enhance the true Masonic spirit and harmony in the District. 

I appointed W. Bro. Percy C. Southern, as District Secre- 
tary, W. Bro. Rev. Lloyd J. Coates, as District Chaplain, W. 
Bro. Samuel Grantham, District Chairman. Masonic Blood 
Donors' Committee and W. Bro. Clifford R. West as District 
Chairman of our Masonic Education Committee. It is with 
regret that I have to report that W. Bro. Samuel Grantham 
was called to the Grand Lodge Above on Sunday, March 10th, 
1963. This came as a distinct shock and great loss. Wor. 
Bro. Grantham was loved by all that knew him and I felt 
the loss of our District Chairman of the Blood Donors' Com- 
mittee. At my request W. Bro. G. W. Sutton took up Bro. 
Grantham's work and has done a wonderful jio/b in this con- 
nection. To all of the Wor. Brothers that assisted me sio 
capably, my sincere thanks. 

I visited all of the lodges at least once, some oftener on 
special occasions. The work was well-done and uniformity is 
being maintained. The Masters and their officers are well 
skilled and well-led by the Grand Lodge Officers of former 
years. The District Secretary reported the books and records 
of the lodges to be in good form and the lodges to be fin- 
ancially sound. 

All lodge buildings were inspected in regard to fire 
safety; m some instances, I took the liberty of offering sug- 
gestions. I can quite readily appreciate the concern of 
(jrand Lodjre in this connection. All inspection reports have 
been turned in. 

Several of the loderes held Ladies' Nights to which Mrs 
Davis and I were kindly invited. For the many kindly and 
thoughtful courtesies extended to both of us, I would express 
our united thanks to all of the brethren and their ladies 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 149 

The great occasion for us in St. Thomas District this 
year was the Reception and Dinner in honour of our Grand 
Master, M. Wor- Bro. R. W. Treleaven, which was held in the 
Masonic Temple, St. Thomas, on Tuesday, March the 26th. 
Our Grand Master gave a most inspiring address and he will 
long be remembered for his outstanding graciousness. 

I have enjoyed visiting with other District Deputy Grand 
Masters from neighbouring districts. As with inter-lodge 
visitation, so it is with other representatives of the Grand 
Master, and tends to build long and lasting friendships. I 
shall never forget them. 

The District Divine Church Service was held in Central 
United Church, St. Thomas, on Sunday, May 26th. It was a 
most inspiring Service, with approximately 400 attending. 
W. Bro. Rev. L. J. Coates, our District Chaplain, was the 
speaker for the social hour after in the Church Hall. 

The St. Thomas District Past Masters', Masters' and 
Wardens' Association always has been and still is an active 
organization and a splendid medium for the promulgation 
of Masonic principles and maintenance of harmony through- 
out the District. The meetings are always well-attended 
and mtost interesting. 

In conclusion, I do want to express my sincere apprec- 
iation to R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, Grand Secretary, and M.W. 
Bro. H. L. Martyn, P.G.M., Custodian, whose patient under- 
standing and kindly assistance greatlv enabled m? to carry 
out my duties. To all P.G.L. Officers, P.M's, Masters, 
pfficers and brethren of our District, for their confidence, 
support, and many, many kindnesses, my sincere thanks'. 

FRED DAVIS, D.D.G.M. 



TEMISKAMING DISTRICT 

Customarily, a D.D.G.M. begins his term with great 
plans and high hopes and throws into his period of office 
a great deal of effort and enthusiasm. The end of the year 
finds, if not disillusion, at least a feeling of regret that, in 
the face of reality, not all the hopes have been realized nor 
has every plan been brought to fruition. 

Lest I sound despondent I hasten to add that if no won- 
ders have been accomplished, neither has any catastrophe oc- 
curred. Masonry in the District is enjoying a period of virile 
activity. Lodges are almost, without exception, not only im- 
proving their properties and increasing their membership but 



150 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

seem to have a strong sense of purpose and direction in the 
marshalling- and use of their Masonic strength and practices. 

An especial effort was made to reclaim Masons who for 
various reasons had ceased — or virtually ceased, to attend 
Lodge and to partake actively in Masonry. A detailed plan of 
action was prepared and meetings were held in the various 
parts of the District with the Masters and Wardens of our 
lodges to expound and explain the plan and the necessity for 
implementing it with much enthusiasm and great effort. Re- 
sults achieved were directly proportional to the energy and 
ability expended by the individual Masters and their officers 
and members. It was demonstrated, beyond denial, that it is 
possible to win back estranged or apathetic brethren. This 
takes much work, tact and persistence, and is well-worth the 
sustained campaign it requires. 

It is a pleasure to report that, although in Temiskaming 
District geography and climate are ever-present problems 
(the Northern border is the shores of James Bay), a great 
deal of visiting between lodges was enjoyed and encouraged. 

By invitation of Osisko Lodge, No. 107, G.R.Q. in Nor- 
anda, Quebec — all the Masters in the District or their rep- 
resentatives formed a degree team to exemplify a First De- 
gree at Noranda. A large delegation of Masons journeyed 
to Noranda and enjoyed, not only the work, but the good fel- 
lowship which ensued. The hospitality and cordiality of Osis- 
ko Lodge was warm-hearted and open-handed and we, in Tem- 
iskaming, hope soon to reciprocate and, where possible, to 
equal their kindness. 

A Lodge of Instruction was organized and conducted in 
the lodge room of Golden Beaver in Timmins. The officers of 
Golden Beaver, Nk>. 528, and Aurum Lodge. No. 704, each 
exemplified a degree. Discussions and questions were free 
and uninhibited and it is hoped that all of the many breth- 
ren who attended derived benefit therefrom. 

Because of the long distance between lodges three separ- 
ate District Church Services were organized and conducted 
by Rev. Brio. H. George Brown. Bro. Brown's obvious sincer- 
ity arid warm but gentle eloquence inculcated and transmit- 
ted a high sense of spirituality to all the Masons who attend- 
ed these Services and were deeply moved by them. 

The usual formal visits were made and, in almost every 
case, several additional less formal meetings were attended. 
In all cases the cordiality and warmth of the welcome ex- 
tended me seemed to be over and above the mere exigency of 
rank. For this I record my humble gratitude to all lodges in 
the District. The work I witnessed ranged from good to an 
empha^c excellent and the calibre of Masters and officers is 
very high. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 151 

Since in today's world an action on one part of the globe 
can precipitate trial and tragedy on all the rest of the earth, 
an effort was made in all visits to emphasize the extreme 
urgency of a genuine sense of brotherhood. This theme was 
perhaps repeated ad nauseam but the kindness and courtesy 
of my brethren being great, nobody complained aloud. 

In the year's work I was unusually fortunate in having 
three highly-dedicated Masons associated with me. May I here 
record my thanks and appreciation for the loyal support and 
solid effort of Wor. Bro. A. K. Graham, District Secretary; 
Wor. Bro. W. J. Marshall, District Chairman of Masonic Ed- 
ucation; and Rev. Bro. H. George Brown, the District Chap- 
lain. If, in this term, I have enjoyed any measure of success 
or accomplishment, a very great part of it must be adduced 
to the staunch and capable assistance of these skilled and 
willing Masons. 

J. A. WEINSTBIN, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "1" 

It has been a very great honour and privilege to have 
served Toronto District "1" as the representative of the 
Most Worshipful the Grand Master during the past year. The 
sincere warmth of fellowship extended by the brethren in all 
the lodges was very much appreciated and indicates the loy- 
ality and esteem that is held in this District for Grand 
Lodge. 

The duties and responsibilities of my office were made 
so much easier by the wonderful assistance given to me by 
the District Secretary, Wor. Bro. Clyde A. Louttit, the Dis- 
trict Chaplain, Bro. Rev. Wm. E. Province, the Chairman, 
Wor. Bro. George McGee and the Secretary, Wor. Bro. Albert 
E. Gerhart of the Committee on Masonic Education for the 
District, and Wor. Bro. W. A. Campbell, Chairman of the 
Blood Donors' Committee. To these brethren I extend my 
sincere thanks and appreciation for a job well-done. 

On each official visit to the nineteen lodges in the Dis- 
trict, I was greatlv impressed by the work of the officers of 
each lodge in performing: their duties with dignity and dis- 
patch. The conferring of the various degrees was done in a 
most impressive manner and it was most gratifying to see the 
Past Masters and, on many occasions, the members taking an 
active part in the degree work. The Secretaries are also to be 
commended for their untiring efforts and interest in the wel- 
fare of their lodges which was indicated br the very well 
kept books and records that the District Secretary found on 
each occasion. 



152 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The Annual Educational Night was held on December 
27th, 1962, in the Annette Street Temple. The work of the 
evening was most interesting and informative and was well 
attended by the brethren in the District. The credit for the 
success of this evening goes to the District Committee on 
Masonic Education and to the Wardens' Association who were 
of great assistance. There is a growing interest in Masonic 
Education within the lodges in the District, which was further 
indicated by the large attendance at a meeting which was 
held with the District Educational Committee and the Chair- 
men of Masonic Education for the lodges of the District. 
This meeting proved so successful that the brethren who at- 
tended expressed the desire that such meetings would con- 
tinue in the future. 

The Annual Divine Service was held on Sunday evening, 
April 21st, and the large attendance at this Service filled 
Trinity Anglican Church. Streetsville, to capacity. The Serv- 
ice was under the direction of Bro. Rev. Wm. E. Province 
who delivered a most inspiring sermon. 

We were all deeply saddened by the death of Wor. Bro. 
Alfred J. Pelley, who was installed as Worshipful Master of 
Long Branch Lodge, No. 632, on December 19th, 1961, and 
who passed to the Grand Lodge Above on November 9th, 
1962. Those of us who had the privilege of knowing Wor. 
Bro. Alf Pelley will always remember him as being one who 
was small in stature but very big in heart. He practised in 
his every day life the principles of Masonry that he so dear- 
ly loved. His courage and devotion to Masonry will always 
be an inspiration (to all of us as we cherish his memory in 
our hearts. 

The many Ladies' Nights that Mrs. Wonfor and I had 
the pleasure of attending were most enjoyable and we greatly 
appreciated the opportunity of meeting so many of the mem- 
bers and their wives on these special occasions. 

There were many special events that took place in manv 
of the lodges in the District, but unfortunately the limited 
space prevents me from making a more detailed report on 
some of these events. There was a verv memorable occasion 
that took place on October 12th, 1962, when the members 
of Comnaught Lodge. No. 501, celebrated the 50th Anniver- 
sary of their lodge. The Deputy Grand Master, Rt. Wor. Bro. 
John A. I nine, was in attendance at this meeting and pre- 
sented V. Wor. Bro. James Seawright with his Grand Stew- 
ard s regalia. A number of the Past Masters received life 
memberships for their devoted service to the lodge and two 
special awards were made to V. Wor. Bro. Archie Norris and 
V Wor. Jack Lee for their outstanding service as Treasurer 
and Secretary of the lodge for many years Rt Wor Bro 
Donald Gunn and Rt. Wor. Bro. Wm. A. Stewart were also 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 153 

made Honorary Life Members and were presented with their 
certificates on this occasion. There was also a very special 
occasion for one of the younger lodges in the District, when 
South Gate Lodge, No. 674, celebrated its 10th Anniversary 
on February 5th, 1963. 

Finally, I wish to extend to my brethren of Toronto Dis- 
trict "1" my sincere appreciation for their loyal support and 
co-operation and to thank them for granting me this mem- 
orable and rewarding year, 

CLIFFORD G. WONFOR, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "2" 

The eighteen lodges of Toronto District "2" meet in 
seven different Masonic Temples throughout the Metropoli- 
tan area and beyond. On the official visits, all lodges ex- 
tended a cordial and fitting reception to me and I in turn 
expressed the greetings and appreciation of the Ruler of the 
Craft. During each visit a degree was conferred which re- 
vealed a high standard of proficiency. The records of each 
lodge were inspected and found in good order. At the banquet 
hour a short address was delivered, special to the lodge vis- 
ited. A feeling of warm friendship prevailed throughout. 

Attendance on unofficial occasions: The presentation of 
a number of Long Service Medals, international visits. Di- 
vine Services, Ladies' Nights and other social functions in- 
dicated good planning and work by the Worshipful Masters. 
Sympathy and interest were expressed on many occasions by 
joining with the brethren at funeral services. 

The close ties between the Masters of the District, the 
smooth handliner of the District's special events and much 
of the well-drilled efficiency shown, are due, in no small 
measure, to the excellent work of the Wardens' Associations, 
with appreciation to Wor. Bro. Wm. Lithgow, President in 
1962, and Bro. Les. Sommerville, President for 1963. 

A meeting was arranged with the 1962 Worshipful Mas- 
ters in the latter part of their vear. Tn March an evening 
meeting was organized for the 1963 Worshipful Masters at 
Lambton Mills Temple. Coming events were reviewed and 
matters of common interest were discussed. Each Mister re- 
ported on affairs in his own lodge. Group discussions were 
held on the theme "How to increase interest and attendance.'' 

The Blood Donors' Committee, spearheaded by Wor Bro 
Wm. R. Sharpe, High Park Lodge, by unselfish and untir- 
ing efforts, re-activated the donor program in District "2" 



154 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Lodge chairmen were appointed; appeals were made; dona- 
tions commenced and are increasing. 

The District Committee on Masonic Education, ably 
headed by Wor. Bro. Andrew F. Nisbet, Jr., Mt. Dennis 
Lodge, with Wor. Bro. Albert L. Lee, Melita Lodge, as Secre- 
tary and Wor. Brp>. Leslie R. Salisbury, Coronation Lodge, 
as Advisory Chairman, carried out a very commendable pro- 
gram. The feature of the year was a splendid Education 
Night, with capacity attendance, held April 29, 1963. at the 
new Thornhill Temple, with Melita Lodge as host. The theme 
"Temple Building", developed by the Chairman, presented 
by lecture and picture, was carried to an effective climax. 
At the banquet hour, Rev. Dr. Emelyn Davies, guest speak- 
er, continued the theme in an address sparkling with humour 
and packed with earnest truth. 

On Sunday evening, May 5, 1963, Islington United Church 
was filled by the brethren, with their families and friends, 
who witnessed to their faith at the Annual Divine Service. 
Bro. Rev. Wm. C. Maxwell, District Chaplain, delivered a 
thought-provoking message "An invitation to reason". R.W. 
Bro. James N. Allan, with the D.D.G.M., assisted in the Serv- 
ice. Nearly everyone stayed to enjoy the social hour. 

Parkdale Lodge entered its 50th anniversary year. Grand 
Steward's regalia was presented to V. Wor. Bro. Grenville 
Tapp, Sunnylea Lodge, and to V. Wor. Bro. Robert Duff, 
Maple Leaf Lodge. Bro. John Sheridan, Occident Lodge, pas- 
sed away in his 103rd year. V. Wor. Bro. Max Smeall, Pat- 
ricia Lodge, creator and donor of many gifts in use in the 
District, presented the D.D.G.M. with a beautifully hand 
carved gavel. 

W. Bro. Dan Beagen, District Secretary, carried out his 
duties with great satisfaction. He was the unfailing aid and 
companion of the D.D.G.M. during the year. 

To have represented the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Master in Toronto District "2", has been a high privilege 
and one of life's rich and rewarding experiences. 

DAVID W. FORRESTER, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "3" 

May I first thank the Grand Master for confirming my 
election as his representative in Toronto District "3". The 
faith of the brethren of ORIENT Lodge in proposing my 
name, and the opportunity afforded me by the brethren of 
the District, in electing me to this high and important office, 
create a gratitude that cannot be easily expressed in words. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1963 155 

Now that my term of office is drawing to a close, my only 
hope is that I have been able to maintain the very high 
standards and principles of Freemasonry as demonstrated 
by my predecessors. 

My first official duty was to appoint Wor. Bro. Thomas 
Gubb of Orient Lodge, No. 339. as District Secretary. Wor. 
Bro. Gubb accompanied me on all my official visits and re- 
ported that the Secretaries of the lodges in the District are 
to be commended for the capable manner in which the lodge 
books and records are kept. I express my sincere apprecia- 
tion to Wor. Bro. Gubb for his capable assistance during my 
term of office. 

The District Divine Church Service was held on Sunday, 
Nov. 18th. 1962, at The Church of the Messiah, and was well 
attended by the brethren. A very inspiring sermon was de- 
livered by Bno. The Rev. Arthur A. Chote, District Chap- 
lain. It was my pleasure to attend other District Church 
Services on behalf of Toronto District "3". 

I appointed, as District Chairman of Masonic Education, 
Wor. Bro. James Watt, who held two Masonic Education 
meetings. The first meeting was sponsored by Doric Lodge, 
No. 316. The mechanics of the First Degree were exempli- 
fied. The second meeting was sponsored by Doric Lodge, No. 
424, at Pickering, in which the mechanics of the Second De- 
gree were dealt with and explained. The attendance at both 
these meetings exceeded our expectations. Masonic Educa- 
tion continues to receive prominent attention by the lodges 
at their regular meetings. Short talks of approximately five 
or ten minutes duration by members of the Lodere Education 
committee, who, from my observation, choose subjects which 
do create interest and which appear to be well-received by 
the brethren. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. A. J. Morganson. Past Master of 
Birch Cliff Lodge. No. 612, as Chairman for the solicitation of 
Blood Donors, and I am pleased to report an increase in the 
number of brethren donating to this worthy cause. I extend 
my sincere thanks to Wor. Bro. Morganson for his untiring 
efforts and co-operation. 

I made an official visit to all fifteen lodges in the Dis- 
trict, and I would like to express my gratitude for the very 
warm welcome and courteous reception extended to me on 
each occasion. I was privileged to witness the conferring of 
all three degrees. On every occasion the work of each degree 
was performed with dignity and dispatch, and in a very im- 
pressive manner. The District Secretary reported favourably 
on the records and also the financial position of the lodges 
It was also my pleasure to attend all of the installation* 



156 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNCATTON 

It was my endeavour throughout the year to see that 
meetings were set in motion at the appointed time and 
brought to a close with sufficient dispatch to permit the 
banquet hall to be vacated by 11:00 p.m. The co-operation 
of the War. Masters in this respect was very much in evidence 
and appreciated. 

While some lodges have no members in arrears, other 
lodges have a large number of members owing back dues. I 
found that the Past Masters and Secretaries were working 
to correct this situation and, in some cases, I recommended 
that the Past Masters be called upon to interview the ne- 
glectful brethren. We must remember that one of the most 
important factors in our Masonic work is the maintenance of 
attendance, interest and co-operation of our older brethren. 
Attendance remains at approximately the same level as last 
year. 

During my term of office is was my pleasure to present 
a Sixty Year Pin to Very Wor. Bro. A. M. Thome, Past Mas- 
ter of Orient Lodge. 



Toronto District "3" together with Toronto' Districts 
"4" and "7" held a Reception for the Grand Master in the 
Banquet Hall of the Yonge St. Temple on March 11th, 1963. 
The Reception was extremely well-attended by present and 
Past Grand Lodge Officers and Masons of this area. On this 
occasion I had the privilege and honour to, present to the 
Grand Master the Worshipful Masters and Wardens of To- 
ronto District "3". 

Mrs. Furlong and I will be forever grateful for the kind 
hospitality we received as honoured guests at several Lad- 
ies' Nights. The many kind friends we made will ever be 
remembered by us both. 

In concluding my report, I would like to take this op- 
portunity of expressing my appreciation to the Grand Sec- 
retary, R.W. Bro. E, G. Dixon, for his kind cooperation and 
his prompt reply to all correspondence. 

To the Wor. Masters of the lodges, the officers and 
brethren throughout the District, who so faithfully, supported 
me by attending my many visits, I wish every happiness 
and prosperity in the future, for they have indeed made my 
year as D.D.G.M. a happy one. 

It is with honest pride in my brethren of Toronto Dis- 
trict '3" that I report the Condition of Masonry in our Dis- 
trict to be of the highest order. 

G. W. FURLONG, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 1J 7 

TORONTO DISTRICT "4" 

I humbly present my report as D.D.G.M. of Toronto Dis- 
trict "4" for the year 1962-63: 

"Tempus Fugit". This past Masonic year has flown so 
quickly, as time seems to do when you are doing something 
that affords one the utmost pleasure. I feel that Todmorden 
Lodge, No. 647, and I have been signally honored by Toronto 
District "4" in electing me to be the representative of the 
Grand Master in this District and I tender my sincere thanks 
to the Grand Master for his confirmation of my election. 

The choice of Wor. Bro. Norman W. Gurr as the Dis- 
trict Secretary proved to be a wise decision. Wor. Bro. Gun- 
has been a tower of strength to me during my term of of- 
fice and is to be commended on having performed the duties 
of District Secretary in a very capable manner. 

We officially visited each of the lodges in Toronto Dis- 
trict "4" and, in every instance, were received in a most cord- 
ial and friendly manner by the Wor. Master, officers and 
members of each and every lodge. The degree work and the 
business part of the meetings were exemplified in a credit- 
able manner throughout the District, maintaining the high 
standards set in previous years. The District Secretary re- 
ported that the various lodges were in good financial condi- 
tion and that the lodges should be congratulated on the ef- 
ficiency of their Secretaries in maintaining the books and re- 
cords in excellent condition and up-to-date. Most of us, per- 
haps, are prone to forget the importance of our hard work- 
ing Lodge Secretaries. Without these key officers we would 
not operate very efficiently. 

The District Committee on Education, headed by Wor. 
Bro. John J. Smith and ably assisted by V. Wor. Bro. Stanley 
Cecil, G. S., along with Wor. Bro's. Geo. McCulloch, Al Boot, 
John Laing and John Gilmour, are to be congratulated on a 
fine effort. Two lodges of Instruction, which were very well 
conducted, were held. The first was held at Chisholm Temple 
on November 30, 1962, under the sponsorship of Todmorden 
Lodge, No. 647. The second was held under the joint auspices 
of Markham Union Lodge, No. 87, and Universe Lodge, No. 
705, at Markham Temple on April 29, 1963. Both these 
Lodges of Instruction were very well-attended which, no 
doubt, afforded much satisfaction to the Education Commit- 
tee and repaid them for the time and effort expended bv the 
Committee and all the brethren who assisted them. 

Our thanks go to Wor. Bro. John Gilmour. who also acted 
as Chairman of the Blood Donors' Committee of the District 
He reports an increase over last year in the brethren donat- 
ing this most precious item. 



158 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I would be remiss in my duties if I did not thank the 
officers and members, present and past, of Grand Lodge who 
have assisted me on many occasions during the year. It has 
been an extreme pleasure to be associated with them, espec- 
ially the D.D.G.iM's of the entire Toronto District. Their 
kindness I shall never forget. 

It has been a real treat to have attended many District 
as well as Lodge Divine Services. Some people look upon a 
Church Service as a chore. I consider it a privilege. I think 
every Mason should consider it to be so. We were fortunate 
in having as the District Chaplain, Wor. Bro. Rev. Wm. 
Pryor — Dean of Wycliffe College. Wor. Bro. Pryor was 
active at the Lodges of Instruction and also preached the 
sermon at the annual Divine Service of Toronto District "4" 
and gave an inspiring message to the brethren. This Service 
was held at St. Barnabas Anglican Church (Chester) and 
was extremely well -attended. Many favorable comments have 
come to me since then. Brethren, let us remember that this 
is Masonry on public display and we must always show the 
world that we are united in supporting the Churches of our 
choice. 

Attendance at the various lodges, in most instances, shows 
signs of improvement and we are happy to report an increase 
of membership in our District for the year. 

The Wor. Masters and Wardens of the District are a very 
active group and their many kindnesses to me and the Dis- 
trict Secretary are truly appreciated. The Secretary and I 
were privileged to attend, with our wives- the various Lodge 
Ladies' Nights and enjoyed all of them immensely. 

It was a special pleasure to have been present at the 
Consecration and Constitution of Universe Lodge, No. 705, 
at Markham, Ontario, on October 11th, 1962. Most Wor. Bro. 
J. A. Heara, P.G.M.. occupied the chair as the representative 
of the Grand Master and the very able Director of Ceremon- 
ies was Rt. Wor. Bro. Geo. McQueen. A very solemn and im- 
pressive service was witnessed by a large audience of breth- 
ren. I wish my successor the same loyal support that has been 
accorded me, knowing that it will be an experience he will 
always remember. 

I, therefore, can report, in all sincerity, that the Condition 
of Masonry in Toronto District "4" is prospering and is in 
very good hands.

,,Trr T1 l? p £ vile 5™ of servin ? a s the representative of the

TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1963 159 

humbly proud. I have a deep feeling of gratitude to the 
brethren of this District for the confidence they placed in me 
by electing me to act as the District Deputy Grand Master 
on their behalf. I would also like to thank the Grand Master 
for confirming their selection. 

I was very pleased to appoint Wor. Bro. R. R. Weston 
as the District Secretary. He has performed his duties in a 
kindly and efficient manner. He reports that all the lodge 
records are well kept in the prescribed manner and he is well 
satisfied with the work of the Lodge Secretaries. I must re- 
port a slight decrease in the membership during the past 
year. 

On all my special visits of inspection I was most courte- 
ously received and a warm welcome was accorded to myself 
and my Secretary. I was privileged to witness the confer- 
ring of all three degrees. The ritual work was well done and 
the mechanics of the degree were well-performed. The Mas- 
ters and officers are to be congratulated on the excellence of 
their work. I am pleased to report on the high quality of 
work and the zeal for Masomy is very evident in this Dis- 
trict. 

Last July, Toronto District "5" was divided into Dis- 
tricts "5" and "6". It was my pleasure to exchange inspection 
visits with R.W. Bro. N. H. Brown. He inspected my lodge, 
Grenville, 629, and I inspected his lodge. Delta, 634. 

I had the pleasure to present the 50 Year Service Medal 
to Wor. Bro. J. Stephen and Bro. Wm. Sinden of Rehoboam 
Lodge, No. 65. These long-time members set a good example 
for the brethren by their loyaltv. devotion and interest in the 
Craft. 

Masonic Education was under the capable leadership of 
W. Bro. R. E. Coultart of King Solomon, No. 22. He had the 
support of a very efficient committee. A Masonic Educa- 
tion Night was sponsored by Grenville, No. 629. This consist- 
ed in giving the answers to a selected list of questions cover- 
ing the ritual, religious and historical background of the 
First Degree. A joint educational meeting of Districts "5" 
and "6" was held in Patterson Lodge, No. 265. This covered 
parts of the Third Degree. Several interesting lectures were 
given covering this degree. These meetings were well-at- 
tended and many favourable comments were made. 

The District Church Service was held in St Stephens 
Anglican Church, Toronto. The District Chaplain, Wor Bro 
The Rev. Canon Guy Marshall, gave a very inspiring mes- 
sage. The meeting was well-attended. I had the pleasure to 
attend worship with several lodges in the District and also 
Church Services in other Toronto Districts 



GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 



Wor. Bro. J. Manuel was Chairman of the Blood Donors' 
Committee; he has acted on this for some time, but would 
have been more pleased had there been a better response to 
this very worthy cause. 

Most of the lodges held a Ladies' Night. Mrs. Brennan 
and Mrs. Weston, together with W. Bro. R. Weston and I at- 
tended these functions. T must say we were accorded most 
gracious treatment on these occasions. 

I would like to thank the Masters, Wardens, together 
with all the many other brethren who co-operated by their 
support to make my term of office so pleasant and a very 
happy occasion. 

I trust I have fulfilled my Masonic duties faithfully and 
to the best of my abilities, and pray that I may be spared to 
serve our beloved Craft for many years. 

SAMUEL H. S. BRENNAN, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "6" 

My year as District Deputy Grand Master has been both 
a pleasure and an education and I wish to express my thanks 
to my brethren of Toronto District "6" for honouring Delta 
Lodge No. 634. bv electing me to this office and to the M. 
Wor. Bro. R. W. Treleaven for confirming the election. 

My first duty was to appoint Wor. Bro. John MacLellan 
of Delta Lodge, No. 634, as District Secretary. Wor. Bro. 
MacLellan accompanied me on all my official visits and he 
reported that the Secretaries of all the lodges in the District 
are to be commended for the efficient manner in which the 
books and records were kept. I express my appreciation to 
W.Bro. John MacLellan for his capable assistance and under- 
standing during my term of office. 

I appointed, as District Chairman of Masonic Education, 
Wor. Bro. Cy F. Marsh of Metropolitan Lodge, No. 542, and 
Wor. Bro. .W. R. Daniels of the same lodge as Secretary. 
Thesp brethren were given guidance bv an Advisory Board 
consisting of R. Wor. Bro. J. A. Crone. R.W. Bro F P Lowry, 
R.W. Bro. F. E- Malcolm and R.W. Bro. J. B. Stevenson: 
The Honorary Advisor was the M. Wor. Bro. H. L. Martyn. 
The members of the Board were W. Bix>. A. S. ChaDman and 
Wor. Bro. K. T. Northover of Bedford Lodge. Wor. Bro. 
Andrew Rise of Rising Sun Lodge and W. Bro. M. A. Earle 
of Unity Lodge. My sincere thanks to this Committee on 
Masonic Education for their splendid work during this year. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1963 161 

A Masonic Education Night was held under the auspices of 
North Gate Lodge on February 28, and the main topic of the 
evening was an explanation of the Junior Warden's Lecture; 
the lodge hall was filled. A joint Masonic Education Meet- 
ing of Toronto Districts "5" and "6" was held on April 22, 
at the Thornhill Masonic Temple under the direction of Pat- 
terson Lodge of Toronto District "6" and St. Clair Lodge of 
Toronto District "5". The work of the evening was an ex- 
emplification of the Third Degree. The meeting was well- 
attended and the Masonic Education Committee were com- 
mended by the brethren present for the splendid performance- 
Throughout the year, the importance of Masonic Education 
was stressed and constant reference was made to the Manual 
for Masonic Instructors and Students. Many Manuals were 
distributed through the District. It was also continually 
pointed out to the brethren that more use of the Library at 
888 Yionge St., which is among the best on the North Ameri- 
can Continent, should be made. 

I was fortunate in having Bro. Rev. R. Harold Parr of 
Delta Lodge, No. 634, as District Chaplain. He has given 
both moral and spiritual leadership throughout the District. 
The Toronto District "6" Church Service was held at the Rev. 
Harold Parr's Church "Glebe Rd. United Church" on April 
7th and the attendance was good. Many other Church Serv- 
ices, sponsored by the various lodges, were also held in the 
District, but for the sake of brevity I will mention only York 
Lodge, which held its Centennial Year Church Service* at St- 
James Cathedral on April 28, at 4:30 p.m. and the speaker 
was the Rev. Geo. R. Thompson, P.G.M., of the Grand Lodge 
of Nova Scotia. 

Wor. Bro. Dr. D. Carmi M. Warren of Metropolitan 
Lodge was appointed the Chairman of the District Blood Don- 
ors' Committee. Our efforts have officially not been too suc- 
cessful, although the Red Cross in the area are getting good 
results Many of our members are giving blood at Red Cross 
Clinics held in connection with their work or at their Com- 
munitv Clinics and they do not and will not report their dona- 
tions to their Lods:e Blood Donors' Chairman. The effort on 
the part of the Masonic Order is undoubtedly needed but 
the report of the District Blood Donors' Committee does 
leave much to be desired in the realm of accuracy. However 
the error is in the right direction. 

I made an official visit of Inspection to fourteen of the 
fifteen lodges in the District and R. Wor Bro F P Lowl- 
and the District Secretary visited the fifteenth for me- my 
thanks to R. Wor. Bro. F. P. Lowry for his kind assistance 
I would like to express my gratitude for the verv warm and 
courteous reception extended to me on each occasion On 
every visit the work of the lodge was performed with di^itv 
and in a very impressive manner. The District Secretary r» 



162 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

ported favourably on the records, the financial positions of 
the lodges and the manner in which the lodge business was 
conducted. 

The lodge buildings in the District were inspected for 
Fire Safety by myself or in some cases by the Fire Marshal 
and all were reported to be satisfactory with most buildings 
in excellent condition. 

It would be impossible to name all the visits and pleas- 
ant experiences I have enjoyed. I was able to attend a num- 
ber of the Installation Ceremonies and several Divine Serv- 
ices inside and outside the District. I also visited with neigh- 
bouring District Deputy Grand Masters and had them join 
with me in visits to lodges in this District. Because District 
"5" was split, in July 1962, into two Districts, "5" and "6", of 
fifteen lodges each, a verv close liaison was maintained be- 
tween R.W. Samuel H. S. Brennan, D.D.G.M. of Toronto Dis- 
trict "5" and myself. In fact, we exchanged inspections of 
our own lodges and held one joint Masonic Education Night. 

I must not forget the many invitations to the Ladies' 
Nights of the District. Mrs. J. MacLellan and Mrs. N. H. 
Brown, along with the District Secretary and myself, apprec- 
iated the hospitality we received and only regret, because of 
my being in the hospital during December, 19*62, that we 
were not able to attend all the functions. 

In concluding my report I would like to express my 
appreciation to the Grand Secretary, R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, 
and in fact to all the Grand Lodge Officers from whom I 
asked and freely received advice and assistance; also to the 
Wor. Masters of the lodges, the officers and brethren 
throughout the District who so faithfully supported me by 
attending with me the many lodges on my visits. I wish them 
every happiness and prosperity in the future for they have 
indeed made my year a happy one. 

It is with honest pride in my brethren of Toronto Dis- 
trict "6" that I can say the Condition of Masonry in this Dis- 
trict is excellent and that the future is in good hands. 

N. H. R. BROWN, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "7" 

The honour of serving as D.D.G.M. has been a very grat- 
ifying and rewarding experience for me. an experience made 
possible by the brethren of District "7" as thev honoured 
Huron-Bruce Lodge, No. 611, at my election during the last 
Communication of Grand Lodge. I again most humbly and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 163 

sincerely thank the brethren for the faith which they placed 
in me. 

I am sure that all District Deputy Grand Masters will 
agree that the District Secretary is a most indispensable 
working partner throughout the year. Unlike many District 
Deputies, I asked the Past Masters of my lodge to select a 
Secretary from among their numbers to work with me. I am 
indebted' to them for their very excellent choice of W. Bro. 
Mac. E. Tolmie as District Secretary. It was always a great 
source of satisfaction to me as he fulfilled his duties in a 
most commendable manner. His willingness to co-operate and 
assist, and the encouragement he offered, were much apprec- 
iated. 

The duties of District Chaplain were graciously accepted 
by Bro. Rev. Charles C. Murray of Huron-Bruce Lodge and 
Minister at Leaside United Church, my own Church. Bro. 
Rev. Charles C. Murray delivered the sermon on the occasion 
of our District Divine Service, which was held in Leaside 
United Church on March 17th last. I am most grateful to 
him for his assistance, to the Session of the Church, and also 
to the Ladies of the Church for their hospitality after the 
Sen-ice. M.W. Bro J. A. Hearn and the D.D.G.M. assisted 
with the Service. Bro. Rev. Murray has served as District 
Chaplain on twto previous occasions. 

I am most grateful to W. Bro. Harry Jowett of Grey 
Lodge for his ready willingness to again act as Chairman 
of Blood Donors' Services. This year we have 541 registered 
blood donors in District "7". The efforts of W. Bro. Jowett 
in this most worthy cause are appreciated. 

I am also deeply grateful to W. Bro. Coulson of Vaughan 
Lodge for acting as Chairman of Masonic Education and for 
conducting a most interesting and informative District Meet- 
ing on March 29th, at 888 Yonge St., under the auspices of 
Huron-Bruce Lodge, by dispensation granted to W. Bro. Alex 
Ironside, Worshipful Master. I offer my sincere thanks to 
Huron-Bruce Lodge, to W. Bro. Ironside and his officers. 
W. Bro. Malloy in his own inimitable fashion, with the as- 
sistance of several skilled Masons, presented a most enlight- 
ening explanation of many subjects pertaining to Masonry, 
but not shown in our ritual, items such as presentation of 
guests at the Altar, preparing a lodge meeting, or details in 
connection with the banquet hour, and many others to a well- 
attended group of keenly interested Masons from the many 
lodges in the District. 

This year Toronto District "7", in conjunction with Dis- 
tricts "3" and "4" , were privileged to hold a reception in 
honour of the Grand Master, in the Masonic Temple at 888 
Yonge St., on March 11th. A very fine attendance enjoyed 



164 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the banquet and a most inspiring message from M.W. Bro. 
R. W. Treleaven. At this time I would pay tribute to the 
Worshipful Masters of the District and their members for 
their support on this occasion. 

I would offer my sincere thanks to the lodges in the 
District for the very courteous manner in which the District 
Secretary and I were received as we visited the lodges on 
'our official visits, and also on many other occasions. I would 
be remiss if I did not include a special word of commen- 
dation to the Lodge Secretaries for their prompt response in 
forwarding information to the District Secretary. Their co- 
operation in completing our special report on Fire Safety in 
Masonic Temples was so prompt and complete that we were 
able to forward our completed report for the District to 
Grand Lodge before the end of October. Many thanks, breth- 
ren. 

During my term, I attended eleven Divine Services, in- 
cluding the combined Toronto Districts' Service, which was 
held in St. Pauls Anglican Church, Toronto, and two other 
District Services outside of District "7". I was privileged 
to take an active part in five Services. 

Mrs. Fleming and I, along with the District Secretary and 
Mrs. Tolmie, are most grateful for the many invitations re- 
ceived to attend "Ladies' Nights". We attended all that was 
possible, without conflicting with our regular duties, and we 
enjoyed the wonderful hospitality extended to us on every oc- 
casion. All "Ladies' Nights", including one arranged by the 
Senior Wardens of the District, were conducted in a most 
commendable manner. 

The work of the Officers of the lodges, during our of- 
ficial visits, was of a very high calibre, and I would have 
to say that I believe we have been receiving an excellent 
type of candidate, having had a short chat with each one 
of them. The regular attendance at lodge meetings does not 
appear to be as high as it should be, but I was pleased with 
the percentage of Past Masters who continue to attend. 

I believe that one of the highlights of my year as D.D.G.M. 
was the official visit to Huron-Bruce Lodge, when my eldest 
slon, Willis M. Fleming, was initiated into Masonry. I was 
privileged to take part in the ceremony. 

In concluding, I thank the Most High for good health 
to enable me to complete all of the twenty-five official visits 
this year, thus affording me an opportunity to learn at first 
hand that Masonry is worthy of the high ideals established 
for us. 

G. M. FLEMING, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 165 

VICTORIA DISTRICT 

It has been a great honour and privilege to have repre- 
sented the Most Worshipful the Grand Master in Victoria 
District. To those who made this possible I extend my sin- 
cere thanks. 

I visited each lodge once, officially, and wish to acknowl- 
edge the gracious hospitality, co-operation and support oi 
the officers and members in making these fraternal visits 
a very important and effective means of strength- 
ening the bond of fellowship among brethren from every part 
of the District. The attendance at all meetings was excep- 
tionally good. 

It was also my privilege to attend several Ladies' Nights, 
Church Services, installations and other functions. 

My District Chaplain, Bro. Rev. Fred J. Reed, accomp- 
anied me on every official visit and at several was the 
speaker, leaving with the brethren many inspiring thoughts, 
spiritually and fraternally. 

The District Secretary, Wor. Bro. Wm. Brotherson, was 
able to report that the books and records of the Lodge Sec- 
retaries were in excellQnt condition. Many Secretaries are 
veterans in that office. Six of the thirteen Secretaries in the 
District are past D.D.G.M's. Their continued interest and 
strong support of their respective lodges are most gratify- 
ing. 

Most of the lodges are active with degree work and, 
while there has not been any heavy influx of new members, 
I feel that there will be a slight increase in membership .dur- 
ing the year. 

Very Wor. Bro. Ken Johnson of Gothic Lodge, No. 608, 
Lindsay, again had charge of Masonic Education and per- 
formed his duties in this capacity with continued zeal and 
rewarding results. 

Wor. Bro. G. N. Stewart of Victoria Lodge, No. 398, 
Kirkfield, was Chairman of the Blood Donors'" Committee. 
North Entrance Lodge, No. 463. at Haliburton. made a great 
contribution in this worthy cause by organizing the Clinic 
held in that village. The members "of Verulam Lodge. No. 
268, at Bobcaygeon, were also strong supporters, hav- 
ing made donations. Other lodges participated to a lesser de- 
gree. 

The Wardens' Association is a very active group and, 
in order that officers junior to them may obtain knowledge 
and experience for future responsibilities, have added the 



166 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Deacons to their numbers. Five visits were made by the As- 
sociation and degrees were either conferred or exemplified 
in very commendable form. This opportunity to share in the 
work has been an incentive to learn many parts of the ritual 
and deliver same with confidence and assurance so that when 
the time comes to assume the Master's chair they will be 
much better equipped for that high office. 

A District Church Service was held in the Presbyterian 
Church at Kirkfield on 'Sunday, May 26th, when all lodges, 
except two, were represented. Church Services were also 
held by the individual lodges and were well-attended. 

Faithful Brethren Lodge, No. 77, Lindsay, and Brock 
Lodge, No. 354, Cannington, have each purchased property 
for sites for Masonic Temples. Plans for the buildings are 
under consideration. Nine lodges already own their own build- 
ings. 

A number of Veteran Jubilee Medals were presented to 
members having 50 years membership, the most outstand- 
ing presentation being made in Faithful Brethren Lodge, 
No. 77, on October 9th. 1962, when seven members, initiated 
in 1912, were the recipients of this medal. 

The Secretary of Faithful Brethren Lodge has the fine 
record of having closed thirteen years with every member 
paid up and hopes to make it fourteen this year. 

R. Wor. Bro. A. M. Fulton, Lindsay, 65 years a Mason ard 
58 years a Past D.D.G.M.. due to ill health, has found it nec- 
essary to restrict his Masonic activities, although he has 
been present at two installations and some other important 
meetings. 

We regret that R. Wor. Bro. H. S. Johnston, of No. 77, 
who has been a member of Grand Lodge Board of General 
Purposes for 22 years and over a long period of time has 
been a verv active Mason in the several branches of the Or- 
der, is confined in Patton's Rest Home, RR. No. 3, Stavner, 
Ont. 

Finally, for this memorable year for me, I extend my 
thanks and appreciation to all who have made it a very 
happy and profitable one. 

G. VERNON GRANT, D.D.G.M. 

WESTERN DISTRICT 

It has been a very great privilege and a very great 
honour to serve as District Deputy Grand Master of Western 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1963 167 

District for the past year. I have expressed my appreciation 
and thanks, individually, to each of the ten lodges in our 
District. I nloiw wish to do so again. 

The support and respect I have received on each and 
every one of my visits has been tremendous and I feel that 
many long and lasting Masonic acquaintances have been 
made. I will always cherish the memory of many an enjoy- 
able evening spent throughout the past year. 

One of my first duties was to appoint Wor. Bro. C. V. 
Strachan of Manitou Lodge, No. 631, as District Secretary, 
which he most willingly and eagerly accepted. He has been 
a faithful and untiring servant and found time to accompany 
me on my visits throughout this widely-scattered District of 
ours, some three hundred miles in length from east to west 
and two hundred miles in width from north to south. 

To round out my district officers, I appointed Wor. Bro. 
Harold Horley of Manitou Lodge, No. 631, as District Chap- 
lain, Wor. Bro. M. F. Hemmens of Granite Lodge, No. 446, 
as District Chairman of Masonic Education, and Bro. Frank 
Taylor of Granite Lodge as Chairman of Masonic Blood Don- 
ors. 

Each and every one of the district officers has been a 
world of support to me in carrying out the many duties and 
visitations that are required. 

There were a number of "highlights" during the past 
year in our District, the first of which being the visit of the 
Grand Master and the Grand Secretary in September. Their 
visit to the northern part coincided with the 75th Anniver- 
sary of Keewatin Lodge, No. 417. I was most honoured to-be 
in attendance, accompanied by Rt. Wor. I. W. Smith of Gran- 
ite Lodge and a member of the Grand Lodge Board of Gen- 
eral Purposes.. 

The banquet and reception was well-attended by mem- 
bers of all six lodges in the north half of the District and 
was highlighted by an interesting and informative talk by 
the Grand Master. The next day we drove south to Fort 
Frances for another banquet and reception there. It was my 
privilege and honour to be chairman for the evening and, 
again, the Grand Master gave a well-received talk to those 
in attendance from the four lodges in the southern part of 
our District. 

Later in September it was my privilege and honour to 
attend the 10th Anniversary of Atikokan Lodge. No. 668. This 
was marked by a First Degree being put on in the after- 
noon, followed by a banquet in the evening and Divine Serv- 
ice the following morning in the Anglican Church at Atikok- 
an. 



168 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Again there was a good turn-out from the lodges in the 
southern part and it was, also, most enjoyable to exchange 
greetings with brethren from the Lake Head who were there 
to help celebrate the memorable occasion and make it the 
success it proved to be. 

In the interest of Masonic Education we were so happy 
to have Most Wor. Bro. Harry L. Martyn, Custodian of the 
Work, visit our District in November and hold Lodges ot 
Instruction at Kenora and Fort Frances. 

Both meetings were well-attended and I am sure the 
instructions in the ritual and questions answered were most 
welcome and heartily received. I have been told by many of 
the Past Masters throughout our District that this has been 
long wanted and I was pleased that it came about during my 
term of office. We are deeply indebted to the Grand Master 
for his arranging to have Most Wor. Bro. Martyn take the 
time to pay us a visit and impart some of his great knowl- 
edge in our Masonic undertakings. 

As before mentioned, my official visits to all ten lodges 
in Western District were most enjoyable and I found the af- 
fairs of Masonry in each of the lodges in good and capable 
hands. I have had the opportunity to witness degree work at 
each of the lodges and found the Masters and officers most 
capable in performing their respective duties. I would like 
to compliment all the Secretaries, without exception, in the 
orderly and capable manner they are performing the many 
duties of their office. Full co-operation and Masonic respect 
were exemplified on each of my visits. My only regret is that 
more visits could not have been made. 

It would appear that we will show a slight increase in 
our membership, in spite of the unavoidable losses suffered 
through members passing to the Grand Lodge Above. This 
loss will be forever felt by those of us who are left. 

Even though my year's term of office is drawing to a 
close and will be terminated at Grand Lodge in July, I hope 
to be able to continue actively in Masonic affairs throughout 
our District, and I pledge my full support and co-operation to 
my successor. 

E. A. LANGSTAFF. D.D.G.M. 



WELLINGTON DISTRICT 

The true spirit of Masonry is surging through Welling- 
ton District. It is a vibrant and vital force that can be felt 
in all 22 lodges. This fact was brought home to me most 
forcefully on my official visits as representative of the Most 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 169 

Worshipful the Grand Master. It was both heartwarming 
and encouraging to meet with such a fine spirit of brotherly 
love and co-operation, indicative of the esteem and venera- 
tion accorded Grand Lodge in this District. 

Each visit was a separate and distinct pleasure. A de- 
gree was conferred in each lodge in the District on my of- 
ficial visit, and it was an inspiration to see the high stand- 
ard of efficiency displayed in most lodges and the enthus- 
iasm and sincerity shown everywhere throughout the 
District. 

I was fortunate in having exceptionally capable officers, 
whose support made the yoke of office much lighter for me. 

Wor. Bro. Jack Reynolds. District Secretary, was a tow- 
er of strength. He accompanied me on all visits and could 
always be relied upon to perform his duties well and accur- 
ately. His reports indicate that the finances and records of 
all lodges are in good condition, although in some cases 
recommendations were made as to ways of making im- 
provements. 

Bro. the Rev. Fred Roberts of First United Church, Gait, 
was our genial District Chaplain. He accompanied me on 
many official visits and his enthusiasm and sincerity won a 
host of friends. He conducted our largely attended District 
Divine Service at First United Church, Gait, where he de- 
livered an inspiring and appropriate sermon, choosing for his 
topic "How to Build a Temple." Bro. Roberts also assisted 
in several Masonic Educational Nights, rendering to the Dis- 
trict Service that went far beyond his required duties. 

In my visits to the different lodges, I stressed the 'fact 
that we were not getting a true picture of the number of 
blood donations made by Masons in this District. In order 
to bolster this side of Masonry, I appointed Wor. Bro. Roy 
Dundas of Gait Lodge, a blood donor of long-standing, as 
District Chairman. Due to the united efforts of Wor. Bro. 
Dundas and various Lodge Chairmen, the final reports from 
each lodge show a tremendous increase in this humanitarian 
giving. My thanks are extended to all those taking part in 
this great project. 

Deciding to make Masonic Education the keynote of my 
term of office, I determined to procure for District Chair- 
man of this Committee, one of the most gifted and exper- 
ienced Craftsmen, Wor. Bro. James Spark. Special credit is 
due to Wor. Bro. Spark, in view of the fact that this is his 
second year in this influential position. His fame as an edu- 
cator attracted many to the five educational meetings or- 
ganized by him. His contagious enthusiasm was responsible 
for brethren of the north and south, plus many well-skilled 



170 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

members of the Craft, delivering short lectures on various 
aspects of Masonry. This created a vast upsurge in research 
and the pursuit of Masonic knowledge. Wor. Bro. Spark is to 
be congratulated on his tremendous achievement in advanc- 
ing the understanding of Freemasonry. 

In order to broaden the scope of Masonic Education still 
further, at each one of my official visits, I tried to give a 
condensed but lucid explanation of some important part of 
Freemasonry. It has been said that we must understand the 
great teachings of Masonry so that we may practice it in 
our daily lives. 

The Past Masters' and Masters' and Wardens' Associa- 
tion in this District are to be complimented for their pro- 
ductive activities during the year and also for their success- 
ful promotion of the Senior Wardens' Night held at Guelph 
in October, 1962. 

A special meeting was held at Waterloo Lodge, at which 
Past Grand Lodge Officers conferred an Entered Appren- 
tice Degree. The meeting was organized by Rt. Wor. Bro. 
A. B. Barton, assisted by Wor. Bro. James Spark. Rt. Wor. 
Bro. Dr. Everon Flath, Dean of Past District Deputies for 
Wellington District, assumed the gavel as Master in con- 
ferring the Degree, which was exemplified capably and with 
aplomb. Another evening of peculiar significance was on 
March 22, 1963, when Twin City Lodge, No. 509, Kitchener, 
celebrated its Fiftieth Anniversary. We were gratified to 
have with us on this unique occasion as honoured guest, Rt. 
Wor. Bro. J. A. Irvine, Deputy Grand Master, whose informa- 
tive address to the gathering was spiced with much wit and 
charm. That these evenings aroused considerable interest and 
enthusiasm in the Craft was evidenced by the large attend- 
ance on both occasions. 

The highlight of the year in Wellington District was the 
visit of our Grand Master. A dinner and reception in honour 
of M. Wor. Bro. Russell W. Treleaven was held at Gait in 
November, 1962. A large attendance of brethren heard our 
Grand Master deliver an instructive and witty address. He 
won the hearts of all with his kindliness, understanding and 
good humour. It was an evening that will long be remem- 
bered in the District. Many thanks are due to all members of 
the Committee who worked so hard to make the occasion an 
outstanding success. 

On the whiole, the edifice of Freemasonry in Wellington 
District seems to be built on a firm foundation of Masonic 
teachines, with kindness and brotherly love for the corner- 
stone. The Masters and officers are fulfilling their duties 
with efficiency and zeal. They are energeticallv pushing 
Masonic Education, with the result that interest in Masonry 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 I" 1 

is forging ahead. The only areas in which greater advance- 
ment could be desired are in attendance, and in some in- 
stances, the collection of back dues. The necessity for im- 
provement in this field was stressed at all official visits 
and it is my feeling that every effort is being made to rectify 
these conditions. 

It is with a heart full of gratitude that I approach the 
conclusion of my term of office. My sincere thanks go out to 
Wellington District for electing me to this esteemed office, 
and to the Grand Master for graciously allowing me to rep- 
resent him. I wouid also like to thank all my officers and 
members of special committees for their valuable help and 
unfailing loyalty. I am most grateful to our Grand Secre- 
tary, Rt. Wor. Bro. E. G. Dixon, who gave unstintingly of 
his wisdom and vast experience whenever I called upon him 
for help, and to Rt. Wor. Bro. George McQueen and Most 
Wor. Bro. H L. Martyn for their expert assistance and sage 
advice. This year has been one of richly rewarding experience 
that will be indelibly engraved upon my memory. 

D. J. MARRIOTT, D.D.G.M. 



WILSON DISTRICT 

To have the privilege of serving as D.D.G.M. of Wilson 
District has been a rewarding and educational experience for 
me. I wish to express my appreciation to the officers and 
members of Dereham Lodge, No. 624, for proposing me, to 
the lodges of Wilson District for supporting me, and to you, 
Most Worshipful Sir, for confirming their choice. 

Without the able instruction of M. Wor. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn the duties of this office would have been difficult in- 
deed. His instruction to small groups, which we realize is 
time-consuming for him, is of inestimable value to the newly 
appointed D.D.CM's in allowing free discussion and an op- 
portunity for each one to obtain clarification of the questions 
regarding which he is in doubt. 

The work of the lodges throughout the District has 
ranged fowm good to excellent. The increasing trend in hav- 
ing side-benchers and junior officers perform major lectures 
is particularly pleasing. The Past Masters are well-versed in 
the work as proven by those called upon, particularly in 
emergencies. 

The excellent slate of District Officers was of great as- 
sistance in relieving- me of many duties. Wor. Bro. W. James 
Hart carried out his duties in a very efficient manner. He 



172 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

examined the records of the Lodge Secretaries and reports 
that they are in good order. In addition he relieved me of a 
great amount of correspondence. 

Wor. Bro. Ray S. Ellis, as District Director of Masonic 
Education, forwarded the Grand Lodge articles on Masonic 
Education to the District Lodges and, at each visit of inspec- 
tion, gave a short and enlightening address on this import- 
ant phase of the work. 

Wor. Bro. Alex Ellis, District Chaplain, arranged the 
Distinct Divine Service, which was well-attended by repre- 
sentatives of most of the lodges of the District. Many of the 
individual lodges of the District have also held Divine Serv- 
ices and those I have been privileged to attend have had 
good attendance. 

Wor. Bro. George McDonald, as Chairman of the Blood 
Donors' Clinic, put considerable work into corresponding 
with the various lodges. He is somewhat disappointed with 
the results of his efforts. However, a start has been made 
and it is felt that several brethren have made donations 
which may not have been reported. 

The Past Masters' and Wardens' Association have en- 
gaged speakers for their meetings throughout the year. In 
addition, they arranged a schedule whereby each lodge in 
the District visited another lodge and the visitors either 
conferred a degree or supplied a speaker to deliver an ad- 
dress on some phase of Masonic Education. This project 
seems to have created considerable interest. 

The high light of the year in Wilson District was the 
Grand Master's visit to Norfolk Lodge, No. 10, Simcoe, on 
October 17, 1962, when Norfolk Lodge celebrated its l&Oth 
anniversary. Norfolk Lodge is to be congratulated on the 
excellent arrangements, and for having such fine representa- 
tions from within and from without the District. 

I would express my appreciation to all who have assisted 
in any way, and to all lodges within the District where I 
have been so cordially received. 

L. D. BARRETT, D.D.G.M. 



WINDSOR DISTRICT 

As this Masonic year draws to a close, and I have an 
opportunity to reflect on the busy year I am now complet- 
ing, I am even more grateful for the opportunity to serve 
the Craft as the personal representative of the Most Wor- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 173 

shipful the Grand Master. I feel a deep sense of gratitude 
to the brethren of Thistle Lodge, No. 34, and the brethren 
of Windsor District for this high honor. 

I was pleased to appoint Worshipful Brother Oliver E. 
Thrasher as District Secretary, Reverend Brother Clarkson 
Smith, as District Chaplain, and Worshipful Brothers John 
E. Lewis and Reginald McLean, as co-Chairmen of Masonic 
Education. The zeal and enthusiasm with which these breth- 
ren discharged their duties must surely be appreciated by 
the brethren of Windsor District. 

I made an official visit to each of the nineteen lodges 
in the District. I am pleased to report that each lodge is in 
good financial condition, the quality of their work is good, 
and the enthusiasm with which they conduct their affairs, 
leaves no doubt in my mind that Masonry in Windsor District 
is in a healthy condition. 

I inspected each of the lodge rooms and temples in the 
District, personally, with respect to the Fire and Safety 
Regulations. I received wonderful co-operation, and I was 
able to submit my report to Grand Lodge by December 31, 
1962. Many of the undesirable conditions which existed, 
have now been corrected. 

This year has had many highlights. Outstanding among 
them was the honor paid to Windsor District and Garden 
Lodge, No. 641, when M. Wor. Bro. Glen L. Alt, Grand 
Master of the State of Michigan, paid us a fraternal visit. 
With him were many of his Grand Lodge Officers. The oc- 
casion was the Installation of Wor. Bro. Gordon Kirkwood 
as Master. M. Wor. Bro. Alt, Professor of Civil Engineering 
at the University of Michigan, was guest speaker at the 
dinner preceding the installation of his former pupil. I felt 
deeplv honored by being chosen to receive him into our 
jurisdiction on behalf of our Grand Master. 

The Windsor District Past Masters' and Officers' As- 
sociation has, again this year, been an inspiration to our of- 
ficers. The leadership shown by this fine Masonic body con- 
tributed a great deal to the success of the many activities 
carried on in the District. A typical example is "the success 
of the Blood Donor campaign, under the chairmanship of 
Bro. T. Fairhurst. Last year Windsor District had 191 don- 
ors; this year we had 414 donors, an increase of 116.89?-. 

Divine Services were held by many of the lodges. In 
addition, the Annual District Divine Service was held under 
dispensation to Windsor Lodge, No. 403, on April 28, 1963, 
at Chalmers United Church, and was well-attended. 



174 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

On Saturday, May 25, 1963, a Lodge of Instruction was 
held under dispensation to Thistle Lodge, No. 34, Amherst- 
burg. Assisting me in exemplifying the Entered Apprentice 
Degree were several Past District Deputy Grand Masters. 
The many questions asked were answered by the District 
Masonic Education Chairmen. 

I wish to mention the fine service rendered our District 
by V. Wor. Bro. Emerson Shrier, Secretary Treasurer of the 
Central Masonic Bureau of Windsor. In addition to his reg- 
ular activities, he found time to speak to several of the 
county lodges, which are not under concurrent jurisdiction. 
He endeavored to encourage these lodgeslo make use of the 
services of the Bureau. So often these brethren work for 
years without receiving any recognition for their fine ser- 
vices. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank the brethren of Windsor 
District for their kindness and co-operation. The wonderful 
spirit in which they carry out their many activities, has 
made this year for me one that I will always cherish.

A request has been referred to the Committee from King

This request is supported by a resolution of the lodge, 
the consent and approval of twelve of the other lodges 
in Toronto District "4", and the consent and approval of 
ten of the lodges in the Victoria District. Eight pf the 
lodges concerned in this transfer did not reply to the re- 
quest for an expression of approval. There were no ob- 
jections recorded by any of the lodges concerned. 

The Committee recommends that King Edward

178 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
WARRANTS 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. W. H. 
Gibson, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Gibson, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Miost Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, in the 
Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Warrants is pleased to present its 
report for the Masonic year, 1962-63. 

Applications for Warrants have been received from two 
lodges, both of which are in a flourishing condition and the 
reports are such that your Committee has no hesdtatilom in 
recommending that these two following lodges be granted 
their Warrants: 

(a) OAKiRIDGE LODGE, U.D., Byron, instituted June 
7th, 1962, by Rt. Wor. Bro. Ross C. Fuller D.D.G.M., to 
be numbered 708 and placed in London District. 

(b) LAREHEAD LODGE U.D., Port Arthur, instituted 
February 13th, 1963. by Rt. Wor. Bro. A. I. McFarlane, 
D.D.G.M., to be numbered 709 and placed in the Algoma 
District 

After examining the records of the two lodges your Com- 
mittee would congratulate the Secretary of each lodge on the 
excellence of his work. The records of both lodges are well 
and neatly kept and would indicate that these two lodges 
have been very careful in the choice of their Secretary which 
is very important to any lodge. Comments and suggestions 
have gone forward to each Secretary which your Committee 
hopes they will find helpful and constructive. 

From the examination of the records of these two lodges 
as well as a number of others, your Committee would recom- 
mend, particularly, for the benefit and guidance of any new 
lodges coming under dispensatilon, that the following sugges- 
tions would be helpful and valuable to any lodge in keeping 
accurate records. 

(1) We commend the above lodges for using the recom- 
mended book for By-laws and Tyler's register and also the 
membership book which is especially designed for that use. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 179 

(2) Both of the above lodges, in keeping their minutes, 
started each meeting's minutes at the top of a new page, 
leaving plenty of margin for topical notations. This, your 
Committee strongly recommends for all lodges. 

(3) It is important that separate minute books be kept 
for any committee's meetings and that these be kept separ- 
ate frioim the regular minute book of the lodge. 

(4) Your Committee would again strongly recommend 
that you use the Grand Secretary's office. The Grand Sec- 
retary and his staff are most willing and indeed, anxious to 
assist in any way possible, particularly in setting up the re- 
cords for a new lodge, as they can give valuable assistance 
and guidance regarding the records which must necessarily 
be kept, and also the type of books which, through wide use, 
have proved most practical and most useful through the ex- 
perience of a great many Lodge Secretaries. 

The Committee does not feel that it is necessary to re- 
iterate the recommendations in detail which were set out in 
the Committee's Report last year, but would strongly recom- 
mend that Secretaries use last year's Report as a guide, not 
only to the securing of proper equipment, but also in the 
proper maintaining of Secretaries' records, which will in- 
crease in value as a reference as the years pass, which re- 
cords, of course, shlould always be kept in fire proof storage. 

While there are no other lodges at present operating 
under dispensation it is understood by your Committee that 
several are in process of being organized and we look for- 
ward to further growth during the ensuing year. 

Finally, your Committee is confident that it is the wish 
of Grand Lodge that we shlould extend, on your behalf, the 
warmest congratulations to these two newly warranted 
lodges and express to them our sincere wishes that their 
membership shall enjoy happiness in their fellowship, pros- 
perity in their administration and every success in the years 
to come. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

WALTER H. GIBSON, 
Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 
ON BENEVOLENCE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. J. N, 
Allan, and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master. 



180 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

seconded by R.W. Bro. Allan, it was received and 
adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I am pleased to submit the report of the Committee on 
Benevolence for the year ended May 31, 1963. 

Your Committee met in the Eemembrance Memorial 
Building in Hamilton on June 7-8 to receive the report of 
R.W. Bro. Geo. J. McQueen, Supervisor of Benevolence, and 
to consider applications for benevolence. There were 248 such 
applications received of which 46 were new cases this year; 
some of these have already received an interim grant. Last 
year the number of applications received was likewise 248 — 
although of these only 29 were new cases. 

The members of your Committee again enjoyed the op- 
portunity of seeing and using the facilities of this fine new 
building. Indeed, several expressed the hope that we would 
decide to hold our annual pre-Grand Lodge meeting in these 
comfortable quarters each year. I am deeply grateful to 
the members of the Committee for the excellent attendance 
and also for their keen, sympathetic and generous interest 
in this benevolent effort of Grand Lodge. We appreciated 
again the privilege of lunching- with our Grand Master, 
M. W. Bro. Treleaven, and our Grand Secretary, R. W. Bro. 
Dixon, at the Scottish Rite Club. 

The sum of $65,000 provided for Benevolence by Grand 
Lodge at our last Annual Communication has been more than 
adequate. The amount expended was approximately SI. 000 
less than the amount disbursed in the previous year. 

The following is a statement of grants made during the 
year 1962-63: 

248 Grants approved and authorized by Grand 

Lodge in July. 1962 $ 55,510.00 

Interim Grants during the year 5,390.15 

S 60.900.15 
Less cancellations and reductions 3.375.00 

Total Grants paid $ 57,525.15 

In addition to the above. Emergency Grants totalling $401.22 
were made. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1963 131 

Our Supervisor of Benevolence, R. W. Bro. McQueen, has 
again discharged the duties of his office efficiently, yet in the 
true spirit of Masonry, R. W. Bro. McQueen's service has 
extended far beyond the dispensation of the grants provided. 
His wise guidance and counsel have been freely given to those 
recipients whose situation indicated special consideration. 
These included a few of our older people and particularly 
dependent mothers with young families where the planning 
of the education of these young people was intensely im- 
portant. 

R. W. Bro. McQueen has visited many districts, but has 
not been able to cover the entire Province. He wishes your 
Committee to again thank those brethren who have greatly 
assisted him, for their continued interest and for their dedi- 
cated efforts in this regard. 

It is with some degree of disappointment that your Com- 
mittee must again report that a goodly number of appli- 
cations received by them did not provide as much inform- 
ation as, in their opinion, could have been furnished. The 
lack of details respecting the needs of the applicant may 
have the effect of restricting a grant, while a full statement 
of the facts would enable your Committee to make a just 
and proper decision. We would again, with the greatest 
possible emphasis, urge that applications be forwarded on 
time so they are available for consideration by the Committee 
at their meeting in early June. 

Additional social assistance has again been made avail- 
able by governments. The Ontario Government has pro- 
vided a pension, applicable by a means test to the following 
persons between 60 and 65 years of age; unmarried women, 
widows and wives with husbands permanently confined to 
medical institutions. The Federal Government has indicated 
that pensions now payable at $66 per month will be increased 
to $75 per month. 

R. W. Bro. McQueen reported to your Committee with 
respect to the effect of increased pension payments as fol- 
lows: "This added assistance, along with the other benefits 
already provided through the various levels of Government, 
has. as has been previously pointed out, played no small part 
in reducing the number of possible claims for our assistance 
and has contributed a great deal in relieving the anxiety of 
so many who, in past years, were concerned about their future 
welfare. While this aid has. to a large degree, eliminated 
the need for our financial help, I feel we should remind our 
members that in each lodge, in every neighborhood, there is 
still a great opportunity for service in maintaining, as lodges 
and as individuals, a personal interest in these members and 
their dependents, thus assuring them that they have not been 
forgotten." Your Committee, therefore, again appeals to 



182 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the officers and members of all lodges to take a personal in- 
terest in the welfare of our brethren and their dependents. 
Our Supervisor of Benevolence requires and appreciates the 
greatest possible co-operation in this respect. Such assist- 
ance is invaluable to him, but it is the recipient of the bene- 
volence who receives the real benefit. The scale of grants 
may be adequate in a financial way but it is the addition of 
the personal and sympathetic interest of a brother that en- 
ables them to fully serve their purpose. 

Last year, your Committee urged individual lodges to 
share in relieving the needs of those members and dependents 
requiring assistance by making a direct grant to the recip- 
ient. We were encouraged to note the generous attitude of 
many lodges in this connection, and commend them most 
heartily. There are still a few lodges that do not share in 
this commendable effort. We are hopeful that your Com- 
mittee will be able, in the near future, to report that every 
Lodge in his Grand Jurisdiction shares in the assistance pro- 
vided to our members and their dependents. 

Your Committee has considered all applications with the 
utmost care and recommends that the sum of $65,000.00 be 
provided for benevfoience in the year 1963-1964. 

It is gratifying to again express our appreciation of a 
bequest and donations received during the year as follows: 

Estate of Charles E. Sealey $ 1,454.74 

Donation Toronto District 1 10.70 

Donation Bro. Frank B. Wenger 25.00 

We again recommend the continuance of our membership 
in the Masonic Relief Association of the United States and 
Canada. 

< I have deeply appreciated the thoughtful guidance and 
assistance of the members of the Committee and express my 
sincere thanks to them. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 
On behalf of the Committee, 

JAMES N. ALLAN, 
Chairman. 

DISPOSAL OF NOTICE OF MOTION 

In accordance with the notice to amend Section 
29 of the Constitution, the Grand Master, after 
turning over the gavel to the Deputy Grand Master, 
presented the following amendment: 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 188 

That Section 29 be amended by deleting the 
words "but not above that of Past Grand Sen- 
ior Warden" so that the section will now read: 

"29. Grand Lodge may on motion, in recogni- 
tion of eminence, ability or service rendered, 
confer upon any of its own members such rank 
as it may deem appropriate. 

"This amendment to be effective for the An- 
nual Communication in 1963 only, reverting in 
1964, and thereafter to the present wording. 

On motion of the Grand Master, seconded by 
M.W. Bro. J. A. Hearn, the amendment was car- 
ried unanimously. 

HONORARY RANK FOR THE 
GRAND SECRETARY 

After briefly addressing Grand Lodge the 
Grand Master presented the following motion, giv- 
ing his reasons for so doing: 

"Pursuant to the recommendation in my Ad- 
dress and for the reasons therein stated, I now 
have great pleasure in moving, seconded by 
M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright, that the rank of Hon- 
orary Past Grand Master be conferred upon 
Right Worshipful Brother Ewart G. Dixon, 
Grand Secretary:" 

The Grand Master called for a standing vote and 
the motion was carried unanimously with great ap- 
plause. Following this the Grand Master invested 
M.W. Bro. Ewart G. Dixon. Grand Secretary, with 
the regalia of a Past Grand Master. 

GRAND SECRETARY REPLIES 

The Grand Secretary expressed his deep apprec- 
iation and humble thanks for this great honor, re- 
ferring to his close associations with the Grand 



184 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Master in the practice of law and in Masonry. He 
said he was proud to wear the regalia formerly 
worn by our late M.W. Bro. James P. Maher, Past 
Grand Master, with whom he had worked so closely 
in Masonry and of whom he had the fondest mem- 
ories. 

CALLED OFF 

Grand Lodge adjourned at 12.45 p.m. 

CALLED ON 

Grand Lodge resumed Labor at 2.15 p.m., the

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
FRATERNAL RELATIONS 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by M.W. Bro. Martyn, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

During the year your Committee on Fraternal Relations 
have examined a request for recognition received from the 
Grand Lodge of India. This Grand Lodge was formally con- 
stituted and consecrated at New Delhi, India, on November 
24, 1961. One hundred and forty-five lodges situated in 
India, who had previously held charters frloim the Grand 
Lodges of England, Ireland or Scotland, joined to form the 
new Grand Lbdge. The fullest co-operation and support was 
given to them by the parent Grand Lodges. 

Your Committee recommends that fraternal recognition 
be extended to the Grand Lodge of India. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

HARRY L. MARTYN, 
Chairman.

REPORT OF FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 

M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, Chairman, presented 
this report and read the Foreword to the Reviews. 
The Deputy Grand Master then moved, seconded by 
M.W. Bro. Martyn, that the report be received and 
adopted. The motion was carried. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
MASONIC EDUCATION 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. W. K. 
Bailey, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Bailey it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge, A. P. and A. M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Masonic Education for the year 1962- 
63, composed of M. W. Bros. W. L. Wright; H. L. Martyn; 
R. W. Bros. E. G. Dixon; B. B. Foster; J. W. Smith; J. 
J. Tahnan; J. B. Creeggan; H. O. Polk; G. M. Fleming; E. W. 
Gilroy; D. R. Young; D. W. Forrester; V. M. Poland; G. R. 
Brown; and W. K. Bailey, as Chairman begs to present its 
report to the One Hundred and Eighth Communication of 
Grand Lodge. 

The appreciation of our Grand Lodge Committee is ex- 
tended to the District Deputy Grand Masters, the District 
Supervisors and the Lodge Chairmen for distributing the bul- 
letins making reports 1 and in advancing the cause of Masonic 
Education. Special thanks are due M. W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, 
Custodian of the Work and a member of this Committee, who, 
in his regional meetings with the District Deputy Grand 
Masters, stressed the promotion of this phase of Masonic 
endeavours. We are not unmindful of the educational ser- 
vices provided by the Grand Lodge Library Committee and 
the Grand Lodge Librarian to the many brethren who have 
sought assistance and counsel during this past year. 

During the year two issues of the Syllabus of Instruction, 
prepared by R. W. Bros. D. W. Forrester and E. W. Gilroy. 
were printed and distributed directly from the office of the 
Grand Secretary to each Lodge Secretary. These pamphlets 
consisted of questions for purposeful research and study of 
Grand Lodge publications — Proceedings of Grand Lodge. 



188 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Fraternal Reviews, Book of Constitution, Manual for Masonic 
Instructors and Students and History of Grand Lodge. 

It is most encouraging to our Committee to be assured 
that over fifty percent of the Lodges in this Grand Jurisdic- 
tion are making use of these publications to stimulate the 
interest of the brethren in the history and traditions of our 
Grand Lodge, in the rules and regulations and in interpre- 
tations of the ritual. 

Since there is no permission for originality in giving 
ritual, it is often considered satisfactory if the wording is 
letter perfect. However, there is ample opportunity for in- 
terpretation or personality in the delivery of ritual. Ritual 
is one of the chief means through which the lessons of Ma- 
sonry can be imparted. Therefore, it cannot be too strongly 
emphasized that we ought to feel obligated to provide the 
necessary instruction to our ritualists. 

Most toasts and speeches present ample opportunity to 
continue and to supplement the instruction received in the 
lodge ceremonies. Consequently, it behooves each and every 
one participating at the festive board to give considerable 
thought and study to the preparation and presentation of 
his remarks. To give some direction and assistance to of- 
ficers and members who participate in lodge ceremonies an 
article, in four instalments, "Preparation and Delivery of 
Masonic Ritual" by W. Bro. E. Macaulay Dillon was dis- 
tributed to the Lodges. We have received commendation on 
the value of this essay. 

We respectfully suggest that the aforementioned dis- 
sertation and the booklet issued by Grand Lodge "For the 
Use of Masters of the Lodge" be the subject of study by each 
Worshipful Master and the officers of the Lodge. Intelligent 
members will not spend their time hearing minutes read m- 
audibly, listening to aimless discussion, or sitting through the 
same poor ritualistic work which they have seen and heard a 
score of times. Unless Masons present, in a challenging 
manner, what Freemasonry has to offer, discerning members 
will not make themselves available to witness and to partici- 
pate. No amount of frantic telephoning, quiz programmes, 
special nights, slick entertainment or popular speakers will 
attract and hold members for more than a few months or 
years. 

The Committee is indeed grateful for many constructive 
suggestions on how Masonic Education on Lodge, District and 
Grand Lodge levels can be improved, such as careful selection 
and training of Chairmen, more continuity in the personnel 
of committees and greater interest and concern by Worship- 
ful Masters. Outlines and brochures of Masonic Education 
programmes are welcomed by our Committee. Toronto 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 187 

District "2" is to be highly commended for a programme on 
the theme "Temple Building" illustrated with coloured slides. 
Quite obviously considerable research must have been done 
m the preparation of this educational material. 

The function of a Lodge is not only for initiating men 
into Masonry but also for instructing and educating current 
members in the fundamental tenets and principles of the 
Craft through the medium of the ritual, amplified by dem- 
onstrations, lectures and study. It cannot be too strongly 
emphasized that each Worshipful Master ought, prior to as- 
suming the Master's chair, to have made plans for selection 
of a competent advisory group to assist him in planning and 
implementing a programme of effective employment and 
instruction of his brethren in Masonry. It can be only 
through such means that we can obviate the dangers of loss 
of membership, indifference on the part of the brethren to- 
wards the Lodge and the Order and other undesirable con- 
sequences. 



Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 



W. K. BAILEY, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. W. M. 
Gordon, Chairman. On motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Gordon, it was re- 
ceived and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, in the 
Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Library Committee appointed at the 1962 Commu- 
nication of Grand Lodge is pleased to present this, the 31st 
Annual Report on its operations. First of all, we would 
say your Library Committee is deeply grateful to you for the 
allotment to it of this task — a significant job of work — 
one which has not only given a great measure of happiness 
and a sense of accomplishment to your Committee to be so 
engaged on your behalf, but also, in all humility, a belief 
that this function of our Grand Lodge has in this past twelve- 
month period maintained and even strengthened its useful 
contribution toward the good and the welfare of the Craft 
in this Grand Jurisdiction. 



188 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

We are grateful, too, for the opportunity of pro- 
moting a positive rather than a negative approach to the 
use of the Library. Your Committee has endeavoured to 
say to those of you who patronize our Library shelves — 
"Please read this book, study its contents and the contents 
of others on similar subjects if you will, but use the know- 
ledge so acquired and pass it on to others". Your Com- 
mittee has endeavoured to promote the more extensive use 
of the Library and its facilities in the firm belief that a 
more extensive use of the Library will give added strength 
to the Brethren. 

The capacity of your Library to satisfy its readers is 
gradually increasing. We are most grateful to the gracious 
givers who donate books from time to time. Our subscrip- 
tions to the transactions and publications of all premier Re- 
search Societies are being maintained. New books are being 
purchased. As a result, we can confidently assert that the 
Grand Lodge Library is one of the best. 

It may be apropos just these few of the standards which 
have been adopted in years past for the operation of our 
Library: firstly, ours is not a general assortment or cover- 
age, as is a public library; it is one concerned exclusively 
with books relating to the Craft; secondly, any Mason, in 
good standing in this Jurisdiction, may borrow books; thirdly, 
the Library does not engage in the sale of books from pub- 
lishers to our borrowers. This business is left to reliable 
firms in the book-selling trade. 

Our Library, however, does have one pleasant duty which 
brings us into touch with many who come from other Juris- 
dictions' every week, and this is particularly so in the sum- 
mer months; travelling Craftsmen come to us for information 
about our collection and the method of its operation; 
about the set-up of our Grand Lodge, when and where Lodges 
might be meeting during the days of their visit to our City, 
etc., etc. Our Librarian is always glad to answer their 
questions and show them our building. These newly-made 
friends are always appreciative of the attention given to 
them. 

In order to account for some of our operating expense, 
these figures will indicate the day-to-day work which has 
been done since our last report.

Association, — a Dominion-wide body, — and many special 
Craft committees and delegations engaged in research on 
lodge histories. 

Our work flor the immediate future involves arranging 
for the binding of paper-covered magazines or transactions, 
and also the rebinding of books which show the damages of 
much shipping and continuous circulation. There are at 
least 50 books which are much in need of such repair. The 
necessity for the renewal of cataloguing and the card index 
system is again apparent. This latter work would involve 
the employment of one extra person for a minimum of one 
month. 

Our premises are looked after by the maintenance staff 
of the Masonic Temple Corporation. They do the cleaning 
and any minor repairs. We desire to put on record our 
appreciation for these services. 

Your Committee is of the unanimous view that special 
mention should be made of the consistent efforts of the Cus- 
todian of the Work in advertising and commending the more 
extensive use of our Library. M. W. Bro. Martyn has 
travelled to all parts of our Jurisdiction, has visited scores 
of Lodges, and in his contacts with these Lodges he has al- 
ways advocated more reading, study and thought by the 
membership. Such a message is timely and is surely one of 
the ways by which every member may add his bit to the 
strengthening of our Order. But suppose that one reads just 
for his own personal enjoyment. Is there a reward? 
Hear what Cicero, that famous statesman and orator of 
Rome, said in the first century B.C. — 

"No mental employment, as that of reading, is so 
broadening to the sympathies, or so enlightening to 
the understanding. Other pursuits may belong; not 
to all times or all ages, or all conditions, but this 
activity gives stimulus to our youth and diversion 
to our old age; it adds a charm to success, and offers 
a haven of consolation to failure. Through the 
night-watches, on all our journeyings, and in our 
hours of ease, it is our unfailing companion". 

This utterance of one of the great minds of so long ago 
may lead us more fully to appreciate the golden opportunities 
that are ours in the Grand Lodge Library. 

Respectfully submitted. 

WILLARD M. GORDON 
Chairman. 



190 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

REPORT OF ADVISORY COMMITTEE 
ON LODGE BUILDINGS 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. Geo. 
T. Evans, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Evans, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, in the 
Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

This 6th Annual Report of the Advisory Committee on 
Lodge Buildings covers a busy year with very satisfactory 
results. 

During the year 24 lodges have sought information or 
have sent in their plans for our examination and approval, 
making a total of 96 since the inception of the Committee. 

Most of you are now aware that in 1958 the Advisory 
Committee on Lodge Buildings was created for the purpose 
of formulating requirements and regulations to govern the 
erection of new Masonic Temples, or the remodelling of exist- 
ing ones. Our particular aim is to see to the safety, comfort 
and convenience of the brethren. We give advice and as- 
sistance in the planning of the lodge rooms and furnish de- 
tailed instructions regarding fire escapes, stairs, toilet rooms, 
furnace rooms, lighting, ventilating, etc. 

We ha>ve prepared bulletins outlining the procedure to be 
followed in initiating a building scheme and in detailing the 
various building and electrical requirements. We also have 
diagram plans for the guidance of the lodge showing typical 
layouts of comparatively small buildings of various sizes. 
These bulletins and diagrams can be had, free of charge, on 
application to the Grand Secretary. 

We would repeat what we have stressed in previous re- 
ports, that lodges contemplating new buildings or alterations 
to existing buildings should write to the Grand Secretary for 
our various bulletins BEFORE any move is made to prepare 
plans or set up financial arrangements. 

REPORT ON FIRE SAFETY 

In our report of last year we informed Grand Lodge 
that we were going to initiate a survey of all our lodge 
buildings throughout Ontario to ascertain the conditions in 
each building as to their fire safety. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 l^ 1 

A set of Fire Regulations and a questionnaire were duly 
prepared and sent to the Secretaries lof all of our 622 lodges 
and to every District Deputy. There are not 622 buildings, 
as in a great many cases the same quarters are shared by 
two or more lodges. The total number of buildings is 406. 
All of the lodges have sent in the completed questionnaire 
which we think is an outstanding accomplishment. 

We cannot speak too highly of the wonderful assistance 
given by most of our District Deputies. We do not think 
it advisable to mention any names but we can say that many 
of them went to a great deal of effort in examining the lodges 
in their districts and in giving full reports on their condition. 
To these faithful District Deputies we tender our sincere 
thanks as they have rendered a valuable service to Grand 
Lodge, to their districts and to our Committee. 

It was our hope that, after studying the fire regulations 
and the questionnaire, many of our lodges would be inspired 
to form fire safety committees and proceed at once to have 
hazardous conditions in their buildings corrected. In many 
cases this has happened and we are grateful to those lodges 
which have taken direct action without further urging by 
our Committee. 

While we were pleased with the splendid co-operation 
from the lodges, and were aware that many of our lodges 
were potential fire traps, we were appalled at the conditions 
which were disclosed. We received 406 completed question- 
naires. All were carefully checked and hazardous conditions 
were noted. Of the total 406 buildings checked, 267 have 
fire hazards which should be immediatelv corrected and 
only 139, or one third of the 406 are considered fire safe. 

Some of the defects are: stairs without handrails*; exit 
doors swinging inwards instead of outwards; furnace rooms 
not having properly protected walls and ceilings. Many 
lodge rooms are on third floors and quite a number are in 
frame buildings with no other means of escape than an inside 
wooden stair. 

The greatest lack is of steel stair fire escapes from both 
the lodge and banquet rooms. Some places have steel lad- 
ders which are anything but satisfactory for quick evacu- 
ation. In many cases a rope has been provided at one or 
more windows. I leave it to you, in case of a quick fire or 
panic from smoke, as to how many would be able to lower 
themselves to the ground on a rope. Your local fire chi^f 
should be called in to examine your building and advise vou 
what to do. J 

After this session of Grand Lodge is over and the work 
load of our Grand Secretary's staff has lessened, we will 



192 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

notify the lodges concerned of the fire hazards existing in 
their buildings and urge they be corrected as soon as possible 
and in the interests of the safety of the brethren we will 
expect that these lodges will take immediate action, but in 
the meantime we hope that all of you will re-examine your 
buildings and take immediate action to make them fire sale. 

We solicit inquiries from all lodges contemplating build- 
ing and assure them of our constant desire to offer them 
every assistance. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

GEO. T. EVANS, 

Chairman. 



PRESENTATION OF JEREMY CROSS MEDAL 

M.W. Bro. George B. Ward, Grand Master of 
New Hampshire, when called upon to address Grand 
Lodge, took this opportunity to present M.W. Bro. 
R.W. Treleaven, Grand Master, with the JEREMY 
CROSS MEDAL awarded by the Grand Lodge of 
New Hampshire for Distinguished Service. 

The Grand Master made suitable reply and 
thanked M.W. Bro. Ward for this great honor. 

REPORT OF BLOOD DONORS' COMMITTEE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. G. E. 
Turner, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Turner, it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lod?e A.F. & A.M. of Canada, in the 
Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is my privilege to present the report of the Blood 
Donors' Committee for this Masonic year. 

The report opens on a tone of satisfaction and enthus- 
iasm, but I trust with no feeling of complacency. There 
has been a decided increase in the number of Masonic donors 
reported, and the total is now 6732, which shows an increase 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1963 193 

of 672 over last year. Following is a list of Districts, and 
the number of donors reported from each District, com- 
pared with the previous year.

Let us now briefly consider the above table. Nipis- 
sing West, under the Chairmanship of Wor. Bro. William 
J. C. Noble, had the largest number of donors reported and 
the Committee also noted that of nineteen lodges in the Dis- 
trict, a report was received from all but one. The District 
Chairman is to be heartily congratulated for his leadership 
in this endeavour. 



194 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Wellington District, with W. Bro. Roy W. Dundas as 
Chairman, had the largest number of donations and he is to 
be sincerely thanked for his efforts. 

There was an increase of donors in 19 Districts, a de- 
crease in 12 Districts, and no donors reported in 6 Districts. 
There were 4 Districts which failed to send in any report and 
the Committee hopes that perhaps next year each District 
will send in a report or at least appoint a Chairman. 

It is. I know, unwise to single out any particular Districts 
for congratulations, but I would ask your kind indulgence 
for a few moments. Windsor District, under the Chairman- 
ship of Bro. Thomas Fairhurst, has shown a great increase 
in donors and I am sure will again show an increase next 
year. 

Victoria District, with Wor. Bro. G. N. Stewart as 
Chairman, worked with zeal and, although the lodges are 
widespread, still had a very good report. Particu- 
lar thanks to W. Bro. Walter Webb of North Entrance Lodge, 
No. 463, for his untiring efforts. 

We wish to thank all those who worked so diligently in 
furthering this charitable work. Our particular thanks go 
to the District Deputy Grand Masters who have so ably as- 
sisted the District Chairmen. The Chairmen have performed 
their duties very well and, at great sacrifice to themselves 
and at some expense, have tried very hard to have as many 
donors as possible register with the Red Cross. 

Finally, our appreciation is extended to the Grand Sec- 
retary and his staff for the many courtesies shown to the 
Committee. 

There is no better way of expressing our good will to- 
ward men than to band together in this great humanitarian 
work and become a blood donor. The Red Cross is in 
desperate need of blood throughout the whole province and 
I am sure will welcome each and every one of you at the 
Clinics. If you give blood, please remember to inform 
your Lodge Chairman or your District Chairman, so that 
next year our report may again show a great increase. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

On behalf of the Committee. 

GEORGE E. TURNER, 

Chairman. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 195 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
CONDITION OF MASONRY 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. B. B. 
Foster, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Foster, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. and A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is my privilege, on behalf of the Committee, to pre- 
sent the report on the Condition of Masonry in this Grand 
Jurisdiction at this One Hundred and Eighth Communication 
of Grand Lodge. 

The office of District Deputy Grand Master carries with 
it many responsibilities. Satisfaction accompanies the ac- 
ceptable discharge of those responsibilities. All District 
reports indicate that these duties have been well performed 
this past year in all areas. The burden of responsibility 
carried by these dedicated men has been materially lightened 
by their District Secretaries who do the detail work, whereas 
the District Deputy Grand Master deals with the problems 
of greater concern. 

It is a pleasant duty to record the report of the good 
work done by Lodge Secretaries and Treasurers. These men 
make a substantial contribution to the well-ordered operation 
of the Lodge. They can prevent much dissatisfaction by 
keeping accurate accounts and by remaining in close touch 
with the members. They also serve as a continuing link 
which each Lodge has with its members who live outside 
the lodge jurisdiction. 

Most reports contain enthusiastic comments on the high 
standard of the ritualistic work done in the areas indicated. 
The suggestions sent out by the Chairman of Masonic Edu- 
cation during the year must certainly have contributed to its 
improvement, and the Lodges of Instruction must have con- 
tinued to assert an influence for uniformity in the District 
where they were held. 

Many reports state that inter-lodge visits are a stim- 
ulating experience to all participating. These visits ranged 
from ones between Lodges within a District to those which 
had to cross the international boundary. Our Grand Lodge 
Officers have been present at many lodge and district func- 



196 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

tions. This has served to bring our leaders into closer con- 
tact with the general membership. The proposed increase 
in the number of members making up the Board of General 
Purposes should materially assist in diminishing the imper- 
sonal nature of Grand Lodge in the eyes of the Fraternity 
at large. 

Many reports contain the names of our lodge veterans 
who have been awarded medals and bars for long service. 
These have been our "steady beacon lights which have guided 
Lodges over the rough seas of time." It is a happy practice 
in several Lodges to devote one evening annually to honour- 
ing their senior citizens. 

A majority of reports mention, with satisfaction, the 
activities of the Past Masters' and Wardens' Associations. 
The wort that these groups accomplish varies from Masonic 
Education, inter-lodge visits to Ladies' Nights. These As- 
sociations certainly help to keep the leaders of the individual 
Lodges working together on the district level, and enable 
them to improve the standard of work done in the District 
as a whole. 

Most Districts have registered a loss in membership 
which the District Deputy Grand Masters attribute to lack 
of interest, with subsequent demits or suspensions for non- 
payment of dues. Committees have nearly everywhere been 
formed to investigate and iron out these difficulties. One 
problem that is experienced by a small number of Lodges is 
the loss of resident members due to changes of employment. 
The report from Nipissing East states, "I should mention 
that two of our smaller Lodges are having difficulty filling 
the offices of the Lodge due to the small local population 
and lack of employment opportunities. Lodge members are 
continually coming and going. Those who carry on deserve 
extra credit for their efforts under trying conditions." 

Some Lodges, to our amazement, do not report activities 
of their Blood Donors' Committees. Your Committee is 
pleased that an increase in donations has occurred this year. 
If we worked in co-operation with Red Cross Chapters and 
assisted in promoting greater participation of our members 
we would improve our stature in the eyes of the public and 
would have added to our own pride in this service to human- 
ity. 

Our Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother R. W. 
Treleaven, has continued to project his gentle and per- 
suasive influence into the lives of all his Brethren who have 
been privileged to attend the District Receptions held in 
his honour. These occasions have enabled him to present his 
views on what a good Mason should be if he is to be a living 
example of the Fraternity, and show to the world those excel- 
lent precepts that are ever propagated within the walls of 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 197 

our Lodges. Your Committee offers its sincere hope that 
our Grand Master may enjoy many more years of good health 
to continue his contribution to the moral and philosophical 
interpretation of the Masonic teachings of the Craft. 

The problem cf lodge attendance has occupied a promin- 
ent place in most reports this year. This would show that 
the situation is recognized as being of major importance, but 
does it show that anything is actually being done about it? 
From personal experience, your Committee would suggest 
that long drawn out meetings are a contributing factor that 
should commend our close attention. The three items men- 
tioned most frequently as being the causes of long meetings 
are; 1. Disregard of the time of opening as shown on the 
lodge circular; 2. Long discussion by officers and other 
leaders in the Lodge during the different orders of business; 
3. Many speeches of a repetitive nature. The first and third 
can be easily eliminated and the second rectified by holding 
a session prior to the business meeting when the Officers 
and Past Masters could reach agreement on the solutions to 
the problems coming before the Lodge. Agreement among 
leaders^ creates confidence in the membership that their bus- 
iness is being handled satisfactorily. 

Masonry has never dictated the form that our worship 
of tiie Great Architect of the Universe should take. It 
forcefully, however, directs our attention to an active par- 
ticipation in the work of the church. It is with great satis- 
faction that your Committee can report that all Districts 
have Chaplains who have added this task to an already 
crowded schedule of duties. Most reports show excellent 
attendance at Divine Services on both the local and district 
levels. If this is an indication of increased attendance of 
our members at regular church gatherings, your Committee 
believes that the added burden on our District Chaplains "will 
be borne more lightly by these, our dedicated Brethren. 
From all reports received, the members should feel a great 
sense of pride in the leadership we have been given in this 
field by our Grand Chaplain, R. W. Bro. Rev. J. B. Creeggan 
during this past year. 

Each District reports a good year in the field of Masonic 
Education. Each District has a Supervisor working in co- 
operation with Lodge Chairmen. Lodge programmes are 
being planned to include some phases of Masonic Education. 
Only by continuing to analyze and interpret the symbols, 
philosophy and history of the Fraternity will we be able to 
make our members realize that they are participants in a 
truly educational society, that they are contributors to a 
fine moral character resting on a sound foundation. R. W. 
Bro. W. K. Bailey has distributed a great deal of material 
which, if properly used, should add to the success of the 
programme. It would appear that the duties of the Super- 



198 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

visors have been discharged well and that the channels 
created in the past for the dissemination of educational ma- 
terial have remained open and free-flowing. 

Each year there seem to be more Lodges seeking con- 
current jurisdiction in and near our urban centres. This 
fact should draw our attention to the various Masonic Bur- 
eaux that serve as a clearing house for Masonic applications 
for membership. These Bureaux perform an important 
function in these areas by furnishing information to the 
various Lodges on the applications received. Your Com- 
mittee is unanimous in its expression of appreciation for the 
services rendered to the Craft by the untiring efforts of the 
officials of the Masonic Bureaux. The report from Windsor 
District states, "very often these Brethren work for years 
without receiving any recognition for their fine service." 
We also express our gratitude here to the Brethren who 
serve the Craft on the various Masonic Boards of Relief. 



Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 



B. B. FOSTER, 
Chairman. 



DISPOSAL OF NOTICES OF MOTION 

The Grand Secretary presented the following 
amendments to the Constitution after explaining the 
reasons for such amendments. On motion of the 
Grand Secretary, seconded by M.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn, they were adopted unanimously : 

(a) That Section 219 (b) of the Constitution be de- 
leted and the following substituted therefor: 

"219 (b) Any brother who has been suspended 
for non-payment of dues shall be immediately 
restored without a ballot at any time within 
three years from the date of his suspension on 
payment of an amount to be determined by a 
resolution in open lodge of which notice of mo- 
tion has been duly given, such amount not to 
exceed the amount owing at the time of sus- 
pension plus the dues for the current year. 

"A brother who has been under suspension for 
more than three years for non-pavment of dues 
can be restored only by a majority ballot vote 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1963 199 

of the members present and voting, after due 
notice to all members, and on payment of the 
above amount." 

(b) That Section 21 of the Constitution be amend- 
ed by deleting the words "and the name of 
the place at which he desires that the next an- 
nual meeting shall be held." 

(c) That Section 18 iii of the Constitution be amend- 

ed by deleting the words contained in (b) 
thereof, namely '"Die place of the next annual 
meeting." 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
FRATERNAL DEAD 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. D. J. 
Gunn, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Gunn, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A. F. & A. M. of Canada 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

At the Annual Communications of this Grand Lodge, a 
great deal of important business has to be dealt with in a 
short space of time, many reports received and much work 
to be done. Such matters are essential, even imperative, 
but Grand Lodge honours itself most when it pauses in its 
deliberations to reverently pay its tribute of respect and 
gratitude to our departed brethren. Each one of us has 
fond memories of some of those Masonic stalwarts who were 
so well-known to us. of the many pleasant hours spent in 
their company, and the inspiration we received from their 
lives and character. 

It has been stated before in the annual reports of this 
Committee that Freemasonry faces challenges today that are, 
in many respects, different from those that confronted our 
Craft in earlier days. Our forefathers lived in more 
leisurely times when pressures were not so great as they 
are today, when there was not the multiplicity of human 
activities to claim the time and attention of men. You may 



200 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

perhaps ask what this has to do with a sincere expression 
of our gratitude and appreciation of the devotion and service 
of those who have gone before. The answer is that we can 
best pay our tribute to them in deeds rather than in words, 
that we must intelligently study the problems of Masonry in 
the kind of world in which we live. If we are to fulfill our 
obligations as Masons we must, ourselves, be strongly imbued 
with the teachings' of the Craft and devoted to its mainten- 
ance and progress. As year follows year and the annual 
report of this Committee is presented to Grand Lodge, one 
essential note remains ever the same, namely that the finest 
and most fitting acknowledgment of our debt to those who 
have preceded us consists in increased dedication and greater 
service to the living. 

We live in an age when materialism is one of the most 
dominant notes, when many of those things that our fathers 
considered as truths are being regarded with skepticism by 
the younger generation. In our modern world with its start- 
ling scientific achievements, the faith of men is being sub- 
jected to more severe tests than in earlier times. The 
teachings of Masonry, however, are clear and ever remind 
us that, when we have developed and utilized our intellectual 
capacities to the full, when we have in the light of reason 
accepted man's continued progress in increasing his know- 
ledge of our material world, we have no refuge but our faith 
in the Great Architect as to the manifold mysteries of this 
life and our ultimate destination when our work in this world 
is done. 

There is scarcely one of us who has not known Free- 
masons who have lived worthily and well, who have served 
their fellow men, who have walked humbly before their God 
and have passed from beyond our mortal ken to the Grand 
Lodge Above. Such was the late R. W. Bro. Walter Percival 
Holmes of St. George's Lodge, No. 15, St. Catharines, and 
the manner of his departure was so unusual and the tribute 
paid to him in the summons of his mother lodge so fitting 
and eloquent that your Committee is including it in this 
report. 

"R. W. Bro. W. Percy Holmes was a veteran 50 year 
Jewel Life Member of St. George's Lodge. He ruled the 
lodge for the two years as Master, beginning 1912 and 1913. 
His 50 year P. M. Jewel arrived on the day of his funeral 
and would have been presented as a part of our 150th An- 
niversary programme, had he lived. 

"R. W. Bro. W. Percy Holmes will be remembered long 
as one of the most ardent, active members of St. George's 
Lodge. His regular attendance until last year, his zeal and 
eager participation in the ritualistic work of the lodge, his 
love and kindly friendship and attention to Masonic duties, 
his visitation of the sick and older members of the lodge, and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 201 

his general interest and assistance in the lodge, will be an 
example for the Past Masters and members who follow in 
his steps. 

"We extend our sincerest sympathy to those who mourn 
his loss, but with the assurance that surely here was a man 
and a Mason who has given freely to his fellows, one who is 
worthy of the richest reward, because of a life well-spent, 
for one who has served his fellow men in lodge, in church, 
and community, worthily and well during his long career. 

"What could be more fitting than he should be 'called 
home' at the moment of the beginning of the regular Church 
Service in Welland Ave. United Church, February 10th at 
11.00 ajm. He had entered in his usual friendly manner, 
salt reverently in his family pew as was his accustomed 
Sunday habit. The organ was playing softly, the choir and 
congregation arose as the Minister entered the pulpit. Our 
Brother Holmes at this moment was now at the entrance to 
that "better life" of which he had spoken in ritual so often. 
It seemed like a pre-arranged service for our beloved 
Brother who had entered that life of immortality under that 
Great Light. It seemed that the star in the East now shone 
over one of the faithful and obedient of the human race. 
The bearers gently removed his mortal remains, the Minister 
led the congregation in prayer, and the morning Worship 
Service continued in solemn reverence and dignity." 

"There is no death! The stars go down 
To rise upon some fairer shore; 
And bright in heaven's jewelled crown 
They shine forever more. 

There is no death! The leaves may fall, 

And flowers may fade and pass away; 
They only wait through wintry hours 

The coming of the May. 

There is no death! An Angel form 

Walks o'er the earth with silent tread; 
He bears our best loved things away; 

And then we call them 'dead'. 

And ever near us, though unseen. 

The dear immortal spirits tread; 
For all the boundless universe 

Is life — there are no dead." 

In reverent tribute to our brethren who have fought the 
good fight and have finished their course, we would remem- 
ber the following:

GRAND CHAPLAIN'S REPORT 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. J. B. 
Creeggan, Grand Chaplain, and on motion of M.W. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 211 

Bro. J. A. Hearn, seconded by Pw.W. Bro. Creeggan, 
it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, Officers, and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. and A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It has been my distinct privilege as Grand Chaplain to 
deliver an address at several gatherings and Church Services 
during my term of office. I have welcomed these opportun- 
ities. I also appreciate the fact that there are those who 
have done duty for me at functions which I could not attend. 
I wish to say "thank you". 

I also must express my grateful appreciation for the 
kindness shown to me by so many brethren — particularly 
from Prince Edward. Frontenac and St. Lawrence districts. 

I beg to report that practically every District has ap- 
pointed a District Chaplain and that many of them have 
been responsible for District Divine Services. I appreciate 
the communications I have received in this matter. I would 
like to make a comment upon this subject — a comment 
which I hope will be considered by every District and every 
Lodge in our Jurisdiction. 

Our Craft is God centered and therefore it is good for 
us on occasions to leave our lodge room and go to one 
or other of the Churches in the Community to worship God 
as a corporate body. This Service should be one of the 
highlights of the year, and, upon such an occasion, there 
should be a good attendance of the Brethren of the Lodge or 
of the District concerned. We have by attendance at Divine 
Service an opportunity to appear in public and give witness 
to our numerical strength. It is one of the very few oc- 
casions upon which we appear before the public. If we 
have any sense of pride in our Order, when a Divine Service 
is arranged let us turn out in large numbers - 

1. To Worship God. 

2. T]o give our personal witness to our faith in God and 
pride in our Masonic Order. 

It is natural for your Grand Chaplain to view our Ma- 
sonic fraternity and fellowship with an eye to spiritual values. 
The high ideals and principles of Masonry are, in a very 
unique way, a challenge to all of us every time we share in 
our lodge meeting. I appeal to every Mason to be a witness 
to these ideals and principles, not only in the lodge room, 
but in every day life. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

J. B. CREEGGAN, 
Grand Chaplain. 



212 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
GRIEVANCES AND APPEALS 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. M. C. 
Hooper, Chairman. On motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Hooper, it was re- 
ceived and adopted. 

To The Most Worshipful The Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge A.F. and A.M. of Canada, in the 
Province lof Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals submits its 
report as follows: 

1 WALES LODGE, No. 458, versus BRO. HOWARD J. 
ROSE. 

This case was considei-ed by Grand Lodge in 1962 and 
is reported in the Proceedings of that year at page 204. 

Bro- Rose was charged with wronging a Mason by fraud, 
was fiound guilty by his Lodge and suspended indefinitely 
with no recommendation of expulsion. 

When the matter came before Grand Lodge it was not 
considered that the practices of Brio. Rose had been of a tech- 
nically criminal nature but, since the evidence contained cer- 
tain allusions to pending proceedings against him, the Lodge 
was asked to consider whether more serious specific charges 
should be laid. In the meantime the conviction and sentence 
were allowed to stand until this Annual Communication of 
Grand Lodge. 

No further complaint has come to this Committee lor has 
been reported to Grand Lodge. On reviewing the proceedings 
before the Lodge this Committee is satisfied that the actions 
of Bro. Rose, as considered by his Lodge, were definitely un- 
masonic and that the verdict and the sentence of indefinite 
suspension as imposed by the Lodge should continue in ef- 
fect. 

2. DEFENDERS LODGE, No. 590 versus BRO. TIIVO 
A. NORDMAN. 

The record of the dealings with this case appears in the 
Proceedings of this Grand Lodge for 1962 at page 204. 

Bro. Tiivo A. Nordman was convicted in the General 
Sessions of the Peace f|or the County of York of unlawful 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1968 213 

conspiracy with others to defraud the public and was sen- 
tenced to a term in the Ontario Reformatory. He was charged 
with unmasonic conduct in his Lodge and, after trial, was 
found guilty and suspended indefinitely with a recommenda- 
tion of expulsion from the Order. 

The Grand Master and Grand Lodge at the Annual Com- 
munication in July, 1962, confirmed the suspension and di- 
rected that he be notified to appear at this Annual Commun- 
ication of Grand Lodge to show cause why he should not be 
expelled. He has been so notified. He has not appeared. 

Your Committee, therefore, recommends that Bro. Tiivo 
A. Nordman be expelled. 

3. ST. ANDREW'S LODGE, No. 62 versus BRO. DAVID 
H. YOUNG. 

The Worshipful Master of St. Andrew's Lodge, No. 62, 
reported to his District Deputv Grand Master that Bro. David 
H. Young had been convicted of incest and indecent assault 
and had been sentenced to a term in penitentiary. The report 
was transmitted to the Grand Master together with certifi- 
cates of Conviction and Sentence issued under the seal of the 
County Court of the County of Haldimand. No charge had 
been laid in the Lodge and, accordingly, there were no prior 
proceedings held. After making certain of the identity of the 
accused and of his conviction the Grand Master, exercising 
his constitutional prerogative, ordered the immediate suspen- 
sion of Bro. Young and referred the case to this Committee 
for further investigation and appropriate recommendation to 
Grand Lodge. 

This Committee, having examined the documents and 
correspondence, concurs 1 in the decision and action of the 
Grand Master and, following the practice heretofore adopted 
in this Grand Lodge where guilt has been established beyond 
question by conviction in a Court of competent jurisdiction, 
this Committee recommends that Grand Lodge confirm the 
action of the Grand Master in suspending David H. Young 
and further recommends that he be notified to appear at the 
next Annual Communication of Grand Lodge to show cause 
why he should not be expelled, and that in the meantime the 
suspension be continued. 

4. OCCIDENT LODGE. No. 346 versus BRO. PAUL 
ANDRUSIW. 

A charge of unmasonic conduct was laid in Occident 
Lodge, No. 346, against Bro> Paul Andrusiw, namely that he 
had been guilty of stealing from the mails. The charge was 
accepted bv the Lodge and, after due notice to Bro. And- 
rusiw. trial was held by the Lodge. A certificate under the 



214 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

seal iof the Magistrate's Court of Metropolitan Toronto was 
placed in the record certifying that on the 20th February, 
1963, the accused was convicted of stealing a diamond ring 
sent by post and was also convicted on four other charges 
of theft from the mails. He was accordingly sentenced to a 
term in jail. The Lodge proceeded with the charge and 
"after some discussion of the case it was moved and seconded 
that Bro. Andrusiw be suspended indefinitely and the full de- 
tails reported to the Grand Secretary." 

Your Committee accepts the minute quoted as implying 
a finding of guilt, particularly in view of the conviction by 
a civil magistrate, and recommends that Bro. Andrusiw be 
notified to appear at the next Annual Communication of 
Grand Lodge to show cause why he should not be expelled 
and that in the meantime the suspension be continued. 

5. VICTORIA LODGE, No. 474 versus BRO. ROBERT 
WILLIAM NEWTON. 

A charge of unmasonic conduct was laid in Victoria Lodge 
against Bro. Robert William Newton in that "he did steal 
from an auto a doctor's bag and did indecently assault two 
females." The time and place of the offences were not speci- 
fied in the charge but reference was given therein to a con- 
viction in Magistrate's Court in which the accused was con- 
victed of the crimes named in the charge and was placed on 
suspended sentence for two years. 

At a Special Emergent Meeting of the Lodge held on 
June 18, 1963, "Bro. Robert William Newton was suspended 
for unmasionic conduct for a period of one year and until he 
is re-instated by Grand Lodge." 

Your Committee concure in the action of the Lodge and, 
following the practice of this Committee with the approval 
of Grand Lodge in similar circumstances, recommends that 
the Grand Master and Grand Lodge do confirm the suspen- 
sion of Brjo. Newton forthwith, and further recommends that 
he be notified to appear at the next Annual Communication 
of this Grand Lodge to show cause why he should not be 
expelled and that in the meantime the suspension be con- 
tinued. 

«. SUNNYSIDE LODGE, No. 582. versus BRO WIL- 
LIAM A. CORY. 

A charge was laid under Rule lfp.) in Sunnyside Lodge 
No. 582. against Bro. William A. Cory that he had been 
eruilty of fraud consisting of uttering forged documents 
The charge was accepted by the Lodge and the Worshipful 
Master appointed a date and place for trial. The accused, 
though notified, did not appear. The evidence was presented 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 215 

in the form of a certificate of conviction under the name 
"William Cory" in Magistrate's Court on twelve counts of 
uttering, contrary to Sec. 311-1 of the Criminal Code. The 
Lodge found Bro. Cory guilty and, ton motion, ordered him 
suspended indefinitely. 

This Committee concurs in the finding of guilt by the 
Lodge and recommends that Bro. Cory be notified to appear 
at the next Annual Communication of Grand Lodge to show 
cause why he should not be expelled and that in the mean- 
ttime his suspension be continued- 



In making this Report to Grand Lodge one or two con- 
structive suggestions, added to the personal sections which 
have already been dealt with, seem to be in order. 

The Rules Respecting Trials for Masonic Offences and 
Proceedings thereon contain much in the way of Masonic 
Jurisprudence which represents wisdom of learned Masons 
accumulated for many years. Unfortunately the Rules have 
not been organized with a view tio simplicity. 

In consequence. Masters. Past Masters and officers who 
are inexperienced either adopt one Rule which seems obvious- 
ly applicable and ignore others, or appeal to Grand Lodge 
to relieve them of responsibility. 

The fact that our Rules have subsisted substantially in 
their present form for about 90 years demonstrates the basic 
soundness pf their form and principles. However, it is be- 
coming increasingly apparent that, where findings have been 
made against a brother in a Court of competent jurisdiction 
in cases to which the brother was a party, including a Mas- 
onic offence shown to have been committed by the brother, 
additional and reoetitious Masonic proceedings should not be 
necessary. In such cases we suggest that the Rules should be 
amended to shift the onus of proof to the accused. 

We further recommend thalt the incoming Grand Master 
appoint a Committee to examine the Rules respecting Trials 
for Masonic Offences and recommend revision or amend- 
ments and to prepare forms relating to the Rules and re- 
port to the Board of General Purposes and Grand Lodge at 
the next Annual Communication. 

In the meantime we commend the Lcdsres which under- 
take to dispose of charges within their Lodge. In most cases 
minor irregularities of procedure can be rectified by this 
Oornmilttee and thereafter by Grand Lodge- In cases where 
a Lodge is willing to undertake its own disciplinary action 



216 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

but finds the Rules confusing, this Committee is willing to 
give advice on matters of procedure if so requested. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

M. CLEEVE HOOPER, 

Chairman.

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, in the 
Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Printing and Supplies, composed of 
Rt. Wor. Bros. H. S. Johnston. W. M. Newell. P. L. Lalonde. 
J. A. Weinstein and the Chairman, begs leave to present the 
report of expenditures on printing and supplies for the vear 
ended May 31st. 1963. as follows: 



220 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Constitutions for re-sale $ 2,663.73 

Proceedings and Postage 4,429.72 

Grand Lodge Bulletins (3 issues and postage)™ 4,130.00 
Printed forms, circulars, records, office sta- 
tionery and supplies 2,863.40 

Syllabus for Masonic Education (2 issues) 187.36 

Fraternal Reviews (2,900) 915.75 

Preliminary Reports (3,500) 1,037.85 

$ 16,217.81 



Expenditures for the items noted herein compare favour- 
ably with the costs reported last year but the total figure 
is the lowest reviewed by this Committee in nearly ten years. 
There is no expenditure recorded for Manuals, Works and 
other Ceremonies purchased for re-sale, which cost $7,211 in 
the preceding period, as the supplies ordered then were 
estimated to cover lodge requirements for two or more 
years. At present rate of use the quantity of Master Ma- 
son Certificates still on hand should suffice for about three 
years. 

Our thanks are due to the Chairmen of the various 
Committees for their assistance in completing and forwarding' 
their reports when required. 

The assistance so freely given at all times by the Grand 
Secretary and his staff is deeply appreciated by your Com- 
mittee. 



Respectfully and fraternally submitted.

Chairman 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
AUDIT AND FINANCE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. R. C. 
Berkinshaw, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Berkinshaw, 
it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Having reviewed the reports of the Grand Treasur- 
er, the Grand Secretary and the Auditor, which have been 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1963 221 

referred to it for consideration by this Annual Communica- 
tion of Grand Lodge, the Committee on Audit and Finance 
finds that the same appear to fully and accurately set out 
all pertinent details relative to the financial position of this 
Grand Lodge for the year ended 31st May, 1963. They con- 
tain full information as to receipts and disbursements in re- 
spect of the General Fund, the Memorial and Semi-Centen- 
nial Funds, complete details of all transactions and changes 
in the Capital Account and schedules of the securities in 
which Grand Lodge funds were invested, as at the above 
mentioned date. 

Your Committee makes the following observations on 
certain subject matters covered by these reports: 

The total par value of the above mentioned securities, 
as of May 31, 1963. was $1,485,403.66-; cash on hand and in 
the bank amounted to $30,747.66, thus bringing the sum of 
all resources to $1,516,151.32. an increase of $46,516.68 over 
the corresponding figures of a year ago as reported by the 
Grand Treasurer. 

All securities in which Grand Lodge funds are presently 
invested are in the category of trustee investments, with the 
exception of Series "A" and "B" debentures of Masonic 
Holdings, purchased under authority of Grand Lodge, to 
a par value of $362,000 — a reduction of $10,000 during the 
year under review. The securities of Grand Lodge, with 
few exceptions, are registered as to principal and interest and 
are held by The Canada Permanent — Toronto General Trust 
Company as its duly appointed custodian. 

Total receipts for initiation fees, dues, commutations, 
interest on investments, etc., amounted to $221,613.08, being 
$4,863.08 in excess of the forecast made a year ago. On 'the 
other hand, total disbursements from the General Fund, 
amounting to $177,817.12, were $20,623.87 less than the esti- 
mates. The main reasons for this unusually wide discrep- 
ancy were considerably lower expenditures on special print- 
ing for resale, furniture and equipment than was anticipated. 
Expenditures have been generally well in line with the ap- 
proved budget and a strict control of all disbursements has 
been carefully maintained. 

According to the audited statements, grants for bene- 
volent purposes amounted to $57,325.15 and were $2,052.27 
less than the grants for the previous year and again, con- 
siderably less than the estimates made by the Committee on 
Benevolence at the last Annual Communication of Grand 
Lodge. 

In recent years, grants by Grand Lodge for benevolent 
purposes, both in number and amount, have shown a diminish- 



-222 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

ing trend although adequate and appropriate provision has 
ibeen made for all cases deserving - assistance. This down- 
ward trend is likely to continue due to the fact that the 
present system of social security benefits, which is supported 
by taxation, has relieved Grand Lodge, to a substantial de- 
gree, of many obligations which it would otherwise be called 
upon to assume. As a result of this trend, there has ac- 
cumulated in the General Fund account a substantial sum, 
which is available for benevolent purposes only, under the 
present rigid constitutional apportionment of the per capita 
fees. 

As reported by our Grand Treasurer, the Grand Lodge 
Auditor points out that the resources of this Grand Lodge, 
shown in the General Fund account, now include an accum- 
ulated sum of $160,357.29, which is available for benevolent 
purposes only, in accordance with the provisions of section 
'245 (m) of the Constitution, representing an increase of 
$36,348.33 over the sum reported last year. If present 
revenues are maintained, this accumulated sum will continue 
to build up, year after year, to disproportionate figures un- 
less some remedial action is taken and a more flexible pro- 
cedure adopted to provide for changed and ever-changing 
•conditions. 

The Committee on Audit and Finance, therefore, views 
with satisfaction and approval the proposed action to be 
taken at this Annual Communication of Grand Lodge, to 
amend the Constitution so as to provide for a more adaptable 
procedure for providing the funds required and to establish 
an appropriate means and method by which the funds of this 
Grand Lodge, which are made available for benevolent pur- 
poses, will be put to wider use for the benefit cf charitable 
and philanthropic endeavour within this Grand Lodge juris- 
diction and within a broader concept of the word "bene- 
volence" than has been envisaged by it in former years, with- 
out affecting or changing, in any degree whatsoever, its 
long-established practice and policy of grants in aid in cases 
of proven need or distress of Masons and/or their dependents 
in this jurisdiction. 

Estimated requirements for benevolent grants for the 
current year amount to $65,000. This Committee, therefore, 
recommends that an appropriation of $42,000 for benevolent 
grants be made out of the General Fund. The interest and 
income funds available from the Combined Memorial and 
Semi^Centennial Funds (estimated at $23,000.00), when ap- 
plied in accordance with Rules 12, 13 and 14 of the Consti- 
tution, will be more than sufficient to provide the balance 
required in meeting Grand Lodge obligations for benevolent 
grants, as recommended by the Committee on Benevolence. 

In accordance with the suggestion contained in the report 
submitted by this Committee at the 1962 Annual Commun- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 223 

ication of Grand Lodge, it now recommends that all grants for 
benevolence, exclusive of those which may be made from the 
Emergency Fund, be paid out of the Memorial Fund to the 
fullest extent of the income thereof, both current and ac- 
cumulated, which may be available for such purpose, and 
that any amount required over and above such income be 
provided by payments into the said Memorial Income Fund 
from the General Fund as, if, and when required. 

The time, thought and careful consideration given to all 
cases requiring financial assistance of this Grand Lodge by 
the Chairman and members of the Committee on Benevolence 
and by the Supervisor, R. W. Bro. George J. McQueen, merit 
the highest praise and commendation of our membership. 

Your Committee recommends that Grand Lodge approve 
the ten special donations made under the authority of the 
Grand Master and itemized in the audited statements, as 
submitted by the Grand Treasurer, namely: 

St. John Ambulance — Ontario Council ....$ 500.00 

The Salvation Army 500.00 

Canadian Cancer Society — Ont. Division 500.00 

Canadian Heart Fund — Ontario Division ._ 500.00 

Ontario Society of Retarded Children 500. 00> 

Ontario Society of Crippled Children 500.00 

Boy Scouts — Ontario Division 400.00 

Girl Guides — Ontario Division 400.00 

Masonic Research Association 100.00 

Commission on Information 100.00 



$ 4,000.00 



The Committee has reviewed the details of insurance 
coverage placed by Grand Lodge, as evidenced by policies in 
the possession of the Grand Secretary, and is satisfied that 
Grand Lodge property, wherever it may be situated, is ade-

RE MASONIC FOUNDATION 

In introducing the report of the Special Com- 
mittee on "Masonic Foundation" the Chairman, 
M.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts, referred to the excellent pres- 
entation by Rt. Wor. Bro. R. C. Berkinshaw of the 
situation developing with regard to Grand Lodge 
benevolences as at present administered. The fin- 
ancial condition had previously been outlined in the 
Report of Audit and Finance which indicated that 
funds were building up in the General Fund ear- 
marked for "Benevolence Only" but which could not 
be effectively put to work under our present scope 



226 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

and operation of the Committee on Benevolence. 
Under the most efficient supervision and direction 
of our Supervisor of Benevolence, Rt. Wor. Bro. 
George J. McQueen, the expenditure of our funds 
to beneficiaries is made only after all sources of 
public funds have been utilized, as any donations 
in excess of the maximum permitted by the laws 
governing- such cases would only result in reducing 
the public grant at the expense of Grand Lodge 
funds with no resulting benefit to the recipient. The 
number of cases presented to the Committee is de- 
creasing over the years and the funds available 
from the income on the Memorial and Semi-Centen- 
nial Funds are able to provide an increasing propor- 
tion of the Benevolent Funds required to meet the 
scope of assistance open to our Board. Amendments 
to the Constitution are proposed which will correct 
this situation by placing the allocation of the per 
capita funds under the control of the Board of Gen- 
eral Purposes without changing the present per 
capita of $1.20. 

A plan has been developed for increasing the 
scope of Grand Lodge Benevolence by creating a 
Charitable Trust or Foundation, with wide objec- 
tives and powers of administration under the law, 
which would relieve the donor or estate from in- 
come tax, estate tax or succession duties on all gifts, 
donations and bequests to such a Trust or Founda- 
tion. The recommendation to Grand Lodge in 1962 
was adopted, setting up a Special Committee to 
study and report on the whole situation and to 
recommend how best to correct the conditions to 
which attention had been drawn and to suggest the 
means by which the whole horizon of our Grand 
Lodge benevolences could be raised to include char- 
itable, educational, scientific and philanthropic pur- 
poses and objects beyond the field already so effec- 
tively covered by our present Committee on Benevo- 
lence, while working in closest co-operation with that 
Committee. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 227 

In general, contributions from individuals and 
from bequests for Grand Lodge benevolence over 
the years have been very few, probably because to- 
date we have had no medium through which the 
same may be made on a non-taxable basis, while 
many Masonic organizations with a properly in- 
corporated Benevolent Trust have grown substan- 
tially and are rendering a great service to humanity 
and adding to the reputation of Masonic service. 

It is not the intention that our Masonic Founda- 
tion, which will function in Ontario, should be called 
upon to make contributions to national organiza- 
tions engaged in charitable pursuits. These will 
continue to be considered for special grants from 
an appropriation made available for disposition by 
the Grand Master as provided in the annual bud- 
get. 

It would seem that the combination of a 
Masonic Foundation and the Committee on Benevo- 
lence, both functioning in their respective fields 
under the direction of our Grand Lodge, will open 
up a great area of service to humanity in this Jur- 
isdiction as well as to special Masonic dependents 
as the need arises. 

This is a day of great opportunity for the 
Masons of this Jurisdiction. Having created the legal 
entity necessary to carry on this charitable work, 
with the appropriate officers to operate, and the 
funds having been accumulated, our Grand Lodge 
will be able to approve of the special avenues of 
helpfulness whether educational (scholarships or 
bursaries), scientific (specific research in medicine 
or surgery for the alleviation of human suffering 
and disease), or philanthropic projects which may 
be within our capacity to support. 

REPORT OF THE SPECIAL COMMITTEE OF 
GRAND LODGE RE MASONIC FOUNDATION 

After the above introductory remarks this Re- 
port was presented by M.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts, Chair- 
man, as follows : 



228 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

To The Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & AM., of Canada 
in the Province of Ontario: 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

At the 107th Annual Communication of our Grand Lodge 
held in Toronto, July 18th and 19th, 1962, the report of a 
special Grand Master's Committee was summarized by the 
Chairman, Rt. Wor. Bro- R. C. Berkinshaw, and at the request 
of the Grand Master was presented to Grand Lodge following 
the presentation of the Report on Audit and Finance. 

This report dealt with the Charitable Funds of Grand 
Lodge and gave supporting reasons for the amendment of 
Section 245 (m) of the Constitution and the establishment of 
a Foundation or Irrevocable Charitable Trust. 

The matter was involved and required more detailed 
study before action could be taken by Grand Lodge, and it 
was recommended that a Special Committee of Grand Lodge 
be appointed to study all the details involved and submit its 
recommendations to the next Annual Sessions of Grand 
Lodge in 1963. 

This Special Committee on "Masonic Foundations" was 
duly appointed, consisting of M.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts (Chair- 
man), R.W. Bro. R. C- Berkinshaw (Vice-Chairman), M.W. 
Bros. T. H. Simpson, J. A. Hearn, H. L Martyn; R.W. Bros. 
J. N. Allan, W. H Gibson, E. G. Dixon and ex-officio, the 
Grand Master and Deputy Grand Master. 

Shortly after the close of Grand Lodge in July last, pre- 
liminary negotiations were held resulting in the drafting of 
an agenda for a full meeting of the Committee at Toronto 
on September 14th, 1962, when the report of the former 
Committee to last Grand Lodge Sessions was fully discussed, 
together with proposed amendments to the Constitution, to 
implement the purposes previously outlined, and the Consti- 
tutional implications of the proposed amendments were re- 
ferred for consideration and the approval of the Committee 
on Constitution and Laws. These were cleared by that Com- 
mittee at a special meeting held in Hamilton on October 15th, 
1962, which found no Constitutional objection to the amend- 
ments. It was further suggested, after considerable study, 
that the most desirable form of Masonic Foundation should be 
set up under the Provisions of a Special Act of the Legisla- 
ture of Ontario. 

A further meeting of members of the Committee was 
held on November 17th at the Grand Lodge offices in Ham- 
ilton to study the possible form of incorporation and the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 229 

legal requirements inherent in the several forms of Charit- 
able Trusts. In this the Committee had the expert advice of 
Bro. Norman W- Byrne, Q.C., whose assistance to your Com- 
mittee is gratefully acknowledged. 

On December 7th, 1962, at Masonic Temple, 888 Yonge 
St., Toronto, the Committee met again to further study all 
the information as to procedures to be recommended to 
Grand Lodge and the legal requirements to be observed to 
fulfill the desired objectives of a Masonic Foundation, 
whether by Special Act of the Ontario Legislature, by Let- 
ters Patent for a non-profit Corporation without Share Cap- 
ital under the Corporations Act of Ontario, or by a Trust 
Deed. It was agreed that the Grand Master be asked to pub- 
lish a message regarding the proposed Masonic Foundation 
in the January Bulletin and that the D;D.G.M's be given prior 
notice so that the Jurisdiction could be advised. 

A sub-Committee met with the Grand Master on March 
29th, 1963 to further review the proposed recommendations 
to Grand Lodge. These were finally approved at a meeting in 
Toronto on April 18th, 1963, and it was agreed that the 
Chairman give due Notice that he would move, or cause to 
be moved, at the 108th Annual Communication of Grand 
Lodge, that the Constitution be amended in the following 
terms : — 

1. That section 245 (m) of the Book of Constitution be 
amended by striking out the words 'of which sixty centts 
shall be used for benevolent purposes only and sixty 
cents shall be paid into the General Fund' so that it will 
read as follows: 

245 (m). For every member of a Lodge whose fees have 
not been commuted to Grand Lodge including honorary 
and charter members, $1.20 per annum; for each mem- 
ber whose fees have been commuted to Grand Lodge 
after July 21st, A.D. 1960, the Lodge shall pay 10 cents 
per annum. 

AND take further notice that upon the foregoing motion be- 
ing carried, I will further move or cause to be moved: 

1. That sections 115. 116 and 119 of the Constitution be 
deleted and the following substituted therefor: 

115. All monies payable to Grand Lodge shall be received 
by the Grand Secretary who shall forthwith deposit the 
same in the bank in which Grand Lodge keeps its ac- 
counts to the credit of the appropriate account and the 
Grand Secretary shall forthwith send a duplicate of the 
deposit slip, showing the particulars of the transaction, 



230 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

to the Grand Treasurer, who shall keep an account of all 
monies so received and deposited. 

1116. The accounts of the Grand Secretary and the Grand 
Treasurer shall be kept in such manner and form and 
subject to such rules and regulations as the Board of 
General Purposes may from time to time prescribe in 
accordance with the provisions of section 119. 

119. The Board of General Purposes shall prescribe 
from time to time the mode in which payments shall 
be made out of the appropriate Fund of Grand Lodge 
and shall provide and pay out of the General Fund such 
sums as the Board may deem expedient, according to the 
needs and requirements of such activities as may be 
recognized and sanctioned by Grand Lodge, including 
grants for benevolent purploses and appropriations to 
any foundation or trust which may be established by 
'Grand Lodge for charitable purposes. 

(Notwithstanding the foregoing, Rules 12, 13 and 14, 
respecting the Semi-Centennial and Memorial Funds, 
shall remain unchanged.) 

It was deemed desirable that Grand Lodge be asked to 
authorize and constitute a committee empowered and directed 
to set up a foundation by private Act of Parliament of the 
Province of Ontario, if possible, of such form, powers and 
purposes as the committee might determine. 

It was suggested that the committee might well be com- 
posed of: 

The Grand Master 

The Deputv Grand Master 

The Past Grand Masters 

The Grand Secretary 

The Grand Treasurer 

The Chairman of the Committee on Audit and Fin- 
ance and such other members of the Craft as the Grand 
Master shall deem advisable, and it is recommended accord- 
ingly. 

Further, that as and when the said Foundation or Char- 
itable Trust shall have been established, the appropriate of- 
ficers of this Grand Lodge be authorized and directed to 
transfer to such Trust or Foundation the amount included 
in the resources shown in the General Fund and available for 
benevolence only, as of May 31st, 1963. 

It is further recommended that the said Foundation be 
named "Masonic Foundation (Ontario)" or similar title. 

Your Committee, meeting in Torionto on July 15th, 1963. 
heartily endorses the principle of establishing a Masonic 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1963 231 

Foundation which will have the necessary qualifications of a 
Charitable (organization under the law, in order that it may 
provide the means of broadening the scope of Grand Lodge 
benevolence, and attracting substantial financial resources 
which will greatly increase the interest and participation of 
the Craft in its benevolent outreach. 



All of which is respectfully submitted, 
On behalf of the Special Committee. 



C. M. PITTS, 

Chairman. 



R. C. BERKINSHAW, 

Vice-Chairman. 

There being no discussion, it was moved by the 
Deputy Grand Master, seconded by M.W. Bro. C. M. 
Pitts, that the Report be received and adopted. The 
motion was carried unanimously. 

DISPOSAL OF NOTICES OF MOTION 

Following the adoption of the above Report and 
pursuant to notice duly given, M.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts 
then presented the following amendments to the 
Constitution :

tion be amended by striking out the words "of 
which sixty cents shall be used for benevolent

lows:

fees have not been commuted to Grand Lodge, 
including honorary and charter members, $1.20 
per annum; for each member whose fees have

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 
ON FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, in the 
Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Fraternal Correspondence for the 
Masonic Year 1962-63, composed of M. W. Bro. W. L Wright, 
R. W. Bro. J. A. Irvine, R. W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, R. W. Bro. 
J. J. Talman and M. W. Bro. H. L. Martyn. Chairman, reports 
as flollows: 



FOREWORD 

The Committee Report is presented as a Foreword to 
the Reviews for the current year. At this time the Reviews 
cover the highlights of the Masonic activities of some sixty- 
nine Sister Grand Lodges and that embraces a fairly complete 
sampling of all the English-speaking Masonic world that we 
recjoignize. These comprise nine Reviews from Canada; 
forty-seven from the United States; three from the British 
Isles: three from Asia; five from Australia; one from the 
York Grand Lodge of Mexico and one from the Grand Lodge 
of New Zealand. 

Since the year 1952 it has been the custom to make avail- 
able to all attending the Grand Lodge Session a copy of the 
Fraternal Reviews for the current year. In this way we 
make a copy available to all our Dodges befoi - e the activities 
commence for the last half of the year. It is our hope that 
these may be an inspiration to our ledge officers and be of 
some help in meeting the problems that have faced Masons 
all over the world. 

One might record some comment on some of the things 
that stand out in the Reviews. To point up something that 
is a cause for concern we may note that forty of the Grand 
Lodges reported on show a loss in membership since the last 
returns. Twenty-four show a gain in membership; one re- 
mains the same as last year and four did not report member- 
ship. An analysis of what this loss of membership means 
in round figures is recorded in the Review for New Hamp- 
shire. There is little doubt but that this is developing into 
a serious problem and we must be sure that we take effective 
measures to meet it in our own Lodges. 

Poor attendance at lodge meetings still seems to be a 
problem in all Jurisdictions. Some report that it is a prob- 
lem even at the Grand Lodge level. I am sure that any help we 
may get from these pages that may assist us with this prob- 
lem as it affects our Lodges will be very welcome. The 



Reviews for Alberta and Kansas are representative of two 
phases of this problem. 

Items that are common to many Reviews include ap- 
proaches to Masonic Education; Masonic Libraries; Masonic 
Benevolence; the laying of cornerstones for non-Masonic 
buildings. This last activity is not very common in our 
Province at the present time. The Review for Texas for 
1961 indicates that Grand Lodge officiated fifteen times at 
the laying of a cornerstone for a non-Masonic building. 

The Committee feel that every reader will welcome the 
opportunity of reading about the similarities and differences 
of Masonic usage in the various Grand Lodges of the world 
In this way they will surely realize that they are an integral 
part of the Masonic world. 

Once again the Committee wish to record their appre- 
ciation to R. Wor. Bro. James J. Talman, our Reviewer. I am 
sure that the Craft all appreciate the masterly way he has 
written these Reviews. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HARRY L. MARTYN, 
Chairman. 



Fraternal Correspondence and Reviews 



ALABAMA— 1962 



142nd Annual Communication — November 20-21 

Grand Master, 1961-62— M. W. Bro. A. R. Fant 
Grand Master, 1962-63^M. W. Bro. P. R. Graham 

Lodges. 435 Membership, 75.988 Loss, 523 

The Grand Secretary included a significant comment in 
his report: 

"No charters were lost during the year, but you will 
note — with a degree of disappointment as the Grand Master 
and I di d' — - that we 'sustained a 523 net loss, the first such in 
22 years. However, we remind ourselves that we are seek- 
ing quality rather than quantity but we must continue to 
be conscious of the many good Masons who are 
on our suspension rolls. Had the larger lodges saved an 
average of two suspensions and the smaller lodges one, we 
would have shown a net gain rather than a loss. That per- 
centage of restorations will effect the same result." 

For many years the Grand Secretary has served as 
Grand Secretary-Recorder of the York Rite Grand Bodies of 
Alabama. The Finance Committee recommended that, in 
view of the larger membership of both bodies, the office be 
divided. The same Committee recommended an appropri- 
ation of not mlore than $1,000 be made to publish an official 
periodical "to inform the Brethren of happenings of interest 
to foster an educational program, and generally to improve 
Masonry in Alabama by disseminating further light to the 
Craft." 

The Finance Committee also recommended that imme- 
diate construction be stalled on the Administration Offices to 
be located on the Masonic Home property. The recommen- 
dations were adopted. 



ALBERTA— 1962 

57th Annual Communication — June 13-14 

Grand Master, 1961-62— M. W. Bro. M. G. Memer 
Grand Master, 1962-63— M. W. Bro. W. L. McPhee 

Lodges, 171 Membership, 19.330 Gain, 93 

Interest is high throughout the jurisdiction and many 
inquiries were sent to Grand Lodge from members contem- 
plating petitioning for new lodges in new areas*. The Grand 



4 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Master flew to Fort Smith where several members of the 
Craft have made arrangements with the Anglican Church 
for a lodge room. A petition has been drawn up and it is 
expected that there may soon be a second lodge in the Ter- 
ritories. 

Much planning has been done toward the establishment 
of a lodge in St. Albert, a fast growing community just north 
of Edmonton. The efforts here prompted the Grand Master 
to declare: "With the rapid growth of all the major centres 
in our province it becomes increasingly evident that more 
lodges are necessary. We are all familiar with the problems 
that exist when a lodge reaches such large proportions as 
many of our City lodges have done. I do not intend to dis- 
cuss the advantages of smaller lodges or the disadvantages of 
extremely large ones but I am certain that all will agree 
that new lodges on the outskirts or in the satellite commun- 
ities can only serve to stimulate interest and do the work 
for which all lodges are erected." 

The Grand Master attended and spoke at eight area 
meetings. In his address he listed the subjects he covered. 
One may readily imagine what he said under the following 

headings: 

"Elections of D.D.G.M's. Not a position to be given as 
an honour for old age or attendance. D.D.G.M. requires abil- 
ity, knowledge, time, means, health. 

"Attendance-Lodge 

(a) Open and close on time 

(b) Plan each meeting 

(c) Know Constitution, Ritual, By-Laws 

(d) Off-colour stories, banquet 

(e) Notices — Interesting and each one different 

(f) Traveling Gavels or Trowels." 

The very last item alone is not self-explanatory. 

Well over 1,000 Masons attended the area meetings but, 
as the Grand Master pointed out. the count was taken from 
those who signed the register. At one meeting 150 signed 
the register but 190 sat down for lunch! 

Although the Grand Lodge was constituted only in 1905. 
Alberta Lodge, No. 3, at Fort MacLeod, celebrated its <ev- 
enty-fifth anniversary. It was established by the Grand 
Lodge of Manitoba. Wetaskiwin, No. 15. also established by 
the Grand Lodge of Manitoba, celebrated its sixtieth an- 
niversary. Ten lodges celebrated their fiftieth anniversaries. 

During the year the Grand Lodge lost M. W Bro Wat- 
son ^oun ? e, Grand Master in 1921-1922. He moved to Lon- 
don. Ontario, some years ago and for many vears was a most 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 5 

active member of the Tuscan Lodge, No. 195, London. He 
was well and favourably known to members of our Grand 
Lodge. 

The Proceedings leave a reader with the impression that 
Freemasonry in Alberta is well led and in a healthy and 
flourishing condition. 



ARIZONA— 1962 

80th Annual Communication — April 23-24 

Grand Master. 1961-62— M. W. Bro. H. W. Holley 
Grand Master, 1962-63— M. W. Bro. C. C. Ford 

Lodges, 59 Membership, 12,762 Gain, 173 

Twenty-two of the twenty-three living Past Grand Mas- 
ters were present at the Communication. During the year 
the Grand Lodge lost four Past Grand Masters. The Grand 
Jurisdiction is in a healthy and prosperous condition. Most 
problems are minor. Only two years ago districts were set 
up with each district assigned to an elective office and the 
system seems to be working well. 

The Grand Lodge moved its headquarters from Tuscan 
to Phoenix which necessitated the retirement of the Grand 
Secretary, M. W. Bro. J. A. E. Ivey, who had served for 
thirteen years. 

The Grand Lodge, at its 1961 Communication, set up a 
system of scholarships. Applications were received and four 
applicants received $400 each. 

The Committee on Publications reported on the feasibil- 
ity and costs of publishing a Quarterly to be sent free of 
charge to every member of each lodge in the Grand Jurisdic- 
tion. It was decided to employ a professional mailing service. 
The Committee also recommended that advertising be limited 
to twenty-five per cent. 



ARKANSAS— 1962 

121st Annual Communication — November 21-22 

Grand Master, 1961-62— M. W. Bro. B. M. Butt 
Grand Master. 1962-63— M. W. Bro. Q. D. LaFargue. Jr. 

Lodges, 379 Membership, 54,658 Loss. 542 

In spite of the loss in membership, there were some 
solid gains during the year. No fewer than six corner- 



6 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

stones for new Temples were laid, three new lodge halls were 
dedicated and a new Lodge was constituted. The corner- 
stone of the new Acadia Fraternity Chapter House on the 
campus of the University of Arkansas, at Fayetteville 
was laid on May 23. The Masons of Arkansas and the 
Grand Lodge contributed $56,000 to the construction. On 
October 6, the new building was dedicated. Over one 
thousand Masons, families and friends were present. (For 
mm'e about this Fraternity see Reviews for Iowa.) 

The roll of living Past Grand Masters carries twenty- 
two names. The Dean of all is M. W. Bro. C. E. Smith 
(1931). His reminiscences, covering five tightly -packed 
pages in the Proceedings, gave a lively picture of Free- 
masonry in Arkansas since 1915. 

The Civil War is a subject of importance in Arkansas as 
one might expect. The Grand Lodge has had a Civil War 
Centennial Committee which reported in part: 

"Your Civil War Centennial Committee has this year 
worked at planning the activities of the Grand Lodge in the 
celebration to be held at Washington, Arkansas, on Julv 4th, 
1963. 

"To refresh the memory of the delegates of the Grand 
Lodge may we say. that in 1863, when the Federal forces 
captured Little Rock, the Confederate Government and the 
Grand Lodge both took refuge at Washington. The Annual 
Communications of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge, Free 
and Accepted Masons of Arkansas, of the years 1863 and 1864 
were held there in the court house, which is still standing. 

"The Arkansas Historical Commission has given the 
Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Arkansas the permission 
to place a suitable marker on the old court house grounds, 
dedicating it to our Brethren who were willing- to sacrifice 
their fortunes and their lives for the cause of freedom. 

"We are now developing a ceremony of dedication of this 
marker, which we will present to the Arkansas Historical 
Commission. 

"It would be well to note, that our work is being made 
easier than it might be. since the members of the Historical 
Commission are all Masons and the executive secretary cf 
the commission is the wife of a Mason." 

To cover the expenses of the stone marker, etc., the com- 
mittee asked the Grand Lodge for an appropriation of 
$2,500.00. 






FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 7 

BRITISH COLUMBIA— 1962 

91st Annual Communication — June 21-22 

Grand Master, 1961-62— M. W. Bro. J. R. Mitchell 
Grand Master, 1962-63— M. W. Bro. D. M. Taylor 

Lodges, 166 Membership, 27,129 Gain, 400 

The Proceeding's open with reports of three Emergent 
Communications for the purpose of Constituting and Con- 
secrating Aviation Lodge No. 175, Vancouver; Westminster 
Lodge No. 174, New Westminster; and East Gate Lodge 
No. 176, Vancouver Heights, North Burnaby. 

The Grand Lodge was held in West Vancouver, the first 
time it had met on the North Shore. All but eight Lodges 
were represented. A total of 845 votes were authorized to 
be cast, by 703 representatives. This would seem to be a 
high number for 166 Lodges. Grand Lodge evidently is well 
supported in British Columbia. 

Park Lodge No. 63, Melrose Lodge No. 67 and Vancouver 
Lodge No. 68 celebrated 50th Anniversaries; Mountain Lodge 
No. 11 celebrated its 75th; and Union Lodge No. 9 celebrated 
its 100th Anniversary. 

The Grand Master contributed to the programme of the 
annual observance of International Night at Lafayette Lodge 
No. 241, F. & A. M. Washington, by showing film slides of 
British Columbia. The Grand Master, A. F. & A. M. of 
Oregon, and the Grand Master, F. & A. M. of Washington, 
were both present. 

The Grand Master in his address told of his visits to 
several Lodges in the interior where, often, at the refresh- 
ment hlour, he stood to honour the toast "To our Absent 
Brethren." 

He concluded "Perhaps such a toast might be incorporated 
at all our gatherings so that the brethren might realize they 
are missed when away from the Lodge." 

In the light of generally declining memberships, a gain 
of an even four hundred is a spectacular achievement. A 
glance down the tabular statement of the work of the Con- 
stituent Lodges shows one with a membership of 439, nine 
with something over 300 and of the remainder not many high 
in the 200 figure. The impression created is that the Lodges 
tend to have relatively small memberships. The Districts 
likewise are small. There is a total cf twenty-five for the 
Grand Jurisdiction. These facts, coupled with fine leader- 
ship, revealed throughout the Proceedings, no doubt play a 
large part in creating the undeniable strength of Free- 
masonry in British Columbia.

COLORADO— 1962 

10 1st Annual Communication — January 23-24 

Grand Master. 1961-62— M. W. Bro. L. H. Snyder 

Grand Master, 1962-63— M. W. Bro. E. Latimer 

Lodges, 168 Membership, 47,332 Gain, 234 

During- the year the Grand Lodge held twenty Especial 
Communications. Five were called to lay cornerstones of 
non-Masonic buildings. One, at Denver. September 16, 1961, 
was held to celebrate the Centennial of the Grand Lodge. 

The Grand Lodge prepared for the Centennial for many 
years. The Committee in charge reported, in part: 

''The first phase, namely, the local commemorative meet- 
ings of all Colorado lodges on August 2, 1961, at which 
commemorative pocket pieces and commemorative booklets 
were provided for each member in attendance, resulted in 
over 9,000 Colorado Masons meeting in the state on the 
same date, at the same hour, with a common dedicatory 
program. Probably no greater number of Colorado Masons 
ever before assembled on a single occasion. Minutes of each 
of these lodge meetings have been accumulated and will be 
placed in a bound volume to become a part of the Grand 
Lodge record of the centennial year. 

"The second phase of the Celebration, the tw^o-day meet- 
ing in Denver on September 16 and 17. 1961, was favourably 
received by all who attended. The guest list during the 48 
hours of the Celebration contained lodges of the state, 79 
distinguished guests and ladies representing 28 Grand Juris- 
dictions in the United States and one in Alberta, Canada, 20 
guests representing other Masonieally related bodies, and 
13 Past Grand Masters. It is doubtful if there has ever been 
a more distinguished or a more representative group of 
Masons assembled in this state." 

Colorado has never held any tiled meetings in the open 
air. But because this was the centennial year and many lodges 
wished to have special and unusual ceremonies when pos- 
sible, the Grand Master authorized such meetings. At the 
same time he laid down certain definite stipulations. The 
site had to be approved, no degree work was permitted, the 
programme had to be approved by the Grand Master and a 
representative of the Grand Lodge had to be present. Three 
such meetings were held. 

The Grand Master appointed a committee, first recom- 
mended in 1955, to draw up plans for a long range pro- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 9 

gramme to construct a Grand Lodge building. The first step 
proposed was an increase of $1.00 in the per capita levy. 

During the year the Grand Master was able to visit every 
constituent lodge in the Grand Jurisdiction. He found, with- 
out exception, sincere and earnest Masons in charge. Some 
are working under severe handicaps because of declining 
populations in their areas. But all are determined to do 
what they can for the Fraternity. Once again, as in past 
years, the Proceedings reflect a live and active Grand Jur- 
isdiction.

A Special Communication of the Grand Lodge was held 
on October 28 for the purpose of dedicating the Temple of 
Village Lodge No. 29. The occasion was noteworthy as this 
was the first time members cf Village Lodge have owned 
and occupied their own Masonic Temple in one hundred and 
s-ixtv-seven vears. The Lodge was chartered on May 15, 
1794. 

The Grand Lodge of the State of Connecticut was con- 
stituted in 1789 with fourteen Lodges. The second Lodge 
constituted by the Grand Lodge was Temple No. 16. This 
Lodge also had a renovated building dedicated. 

The Grand Master drew attention to the great variation 
as to the number of the 103 foreign Grand Lodges recognized 
by the forty-nine Grand Lodges of the (Continental) United 
States. Every foreign Grand Lodge is recognized by at 
least one state but only twenty-six are recognized by all the 
forty-nine Grand Jurisdictions. He concluded: "I have 
the conviction that there are great differences in rationale 
and criteria used by our 49 Grand Jurisdictions in their recog- 
nition of foreign Grand Lodges." 

During the year an original problem came up. The 
Grand Master ruled that members of a Masonic bowling 
team could place the name of their Lodge. Masonic insignia 
and the names of players on bowling shirts when competing 
on a team in a Masonic bowling league. The Grand Lodge, 
however, ruled that it was not proper and ordered that a 
resolution to that effect be printed in the Proceedings. 



10 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

In conclusion, the Grand Master, after paying tribute to 
the Board of Managers of the Home and Hospital, stated: 

"One of the principal goals of our society, sincerely 
espoused by the teachings and activities of Masonry, is the 
constant reduction and final elimination of prejudice. Let 
us work for this goal at all times, in all places and with all 
men. We cannot achieve universal brotherhood until we 
can meet 'upon the level,' 'act by the plumb' and 'part upon 
the square.' 

"The organizational pattern varies greatly among our 
constituent lodges. In many lodges little if any provisions 
are made, through assignments to individuals or committees, 
to develop programs and ideas for improvement, which have 
been tested, and are generally accepted by the Craft. If 
the lodge organization would provide for these programs and 
idea? by putting interested and capable men to work, we 
would begin to experience more accomplishment. The 
Grand Lodge has twenty-five Standing and Special Commit- 
tees which make it possible to preserve continuity and de- 
velop programs. The constituent lodge has the same need 
to preserve continuity and develop programs over periods of 
time exceeding one year. Let's look well to developing an 
organization, in the constituent lodge, that will put men to 
work on important programs. 

"Local initiative prove? its superiority when good work- 
ers, good idea men, and capable leadership are available. 
Local autonomy cannot be tolerated, however .if it deliberately 
or by neglect does nothing. May the constituent lodges do 
so well that they become an inspiration to others, rather 
than having to be cajoled into necessary activities."

The Officers of the Grand Lodge, at the request of the 
President, laid a cornerstone for the eleventh time on the 
campus of the University of Delaware. On this occasion the 
cornerstone was that of a new Mathematics and Physics 
building. 

The historian of the Grand Lodge published a history of 
Freemasonry in the state under the title "Masonic Potpurri." 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 11 

The Grand Master reiterated the statement of his pre- 
decessor that similar lodges should be set up. All exper- 
ience in Delaware points to the conclusion that the smaller 
lodges are the active ones. 

In a few sage words the Grand Master gave his view of 
the state of the Craft. 

"In my judgment, it is beyond the power of any Grand 
Master to fully analyze or definitely determine the exact 
status of Freemasonry in his jurisdiction as of today. The 
cross currents of human thinking are very evident: the 
changing concepts of social, economic and political ideas 
have their effect upon a stabilized way of life. Masonry is 
involved, not of its own accord, but because it cannot avoid 
the unsettled conditions of any given time. 

"I am confident that the 9,000 Masons in this jurisdiction 
can be a vital force in preserving our way of life. We can- 
not help but appreciate the amicable relationship that de- 
velops when brethren meet and fellowship together as Masons. 
Men of varying personalities, interests and vocations in com- 
ing together cultivate a better understanding of each others 
problems. Serving as officers of the Lodge and participat- 
ing in the ritualistic work develops the ability to become 
leaders in the community, thereby contributing to a better 
community life. 

"There is nothing lacking in Masonry in Delaware that 
increased interest and enthusiasm for the Order cannot over- 
come. We serve Masonry by being better Masons ourselves. 
We are constantly gaining or losing new petitions by the way 
Ave live as Masons. The basis upon which new members are 
sought is through favorable opinion developed by the organ- 
ization; how brethren act and live. We as Masons therefore 
determine in a large measure the future of our organization." 



ENGLAND — 1962

Grand Secretary — V. W. Bro. James W. Stubbs 

The relationship of Masonry and Religion is a constantly 
recurring question. Though all Masons know the answer, 
the Board of General Purposes has felt it necessary to re- 
state the position taken by the United Grand Lrdge of 



12 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

England. Since this statement is clear and straightforward its 
reprinting here may enable Brethren to clarify their own 
ideas. However, it must be added that the statement pro- 
duced a great deal of discussion. 

"The Board has been giving the most earnest considera- 
tion to this subject, being convinced that it is of fundamental 
importance to the reputation and well-being of English Free- 
masonry that no misundei-standing should exist either inside 
or outside the Craft. 

"It cannot be too strongly asserted that Masonry is 
neither a religion nor a substitute for religion. Masonry 
seeks to inculcate in its members a standard of conduct and 
behaviour which it believes to be acceptable to all creeds, but 
studiously refrains from intervening in the field of dogma 
or theology. Masonry, therefore, is not a competi- 
tor with religion though in the sphere of human conduct it 
may be hoped that its teaching will be complementary to that 
of religion. On the other hand its basic requirement that 
every member of the Order shall believe in a Supreme Being 
and the stress laid upon his duty towards Him should be 
sufficient evidence to all but the wilfully prejudiced that 
Masonry is an upholder of religion since it both requires a 
man to have some form of religious belief before he can be 
admitted as a Mason, and expects him when admitted to go 
on practising his religion. 

"The Board hopes that Grand Lodge will agree that this 
is a valid statement of the Masonic position, and in the prac- 
tical application of these principles will lay down: 

(i) that Masonic rites, prayers and ceremonies be con- 
fined to the Lodge room, and that dispensation to 
wear regalia (which term includes white gloves) in 
public be granted only in exceptional cases; 

(ii) that elements of vocal music normally associated 
with religious worship be not included in Masonic 
ceremonies, all other items being subject to the ap- 
proval of the Masonic authorities; (This sub-para- 
graph was withdrawn by leave of Grand Lodge.) 

(iii) that there be no active participation by Masons, as 
such, in any part of the burial service or cremation 
of a Brother and that there be no Masonic prayers, 
readings or exhortations either then or at the grave- 
side subsequent to the interment, since the final ob- 
sequies of any human being, Mason or riot, are com- 
plete in themselves and do not call in the case of a 
Freemason for any additional ministrations. That 
if it is wished to recall and allude to his Masonic 
life and actions, this can appropriately be done at 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 13 

the next Lodge Meeting in the presence of his Breth- 
ren, or at a specifically ari*anged Memorial Service; 

(iv) but that while no obstacle should be put in the way 
of Masons wishing to take part in an act of corporate 
wtorship, only in rare and exceptional cases should 
they be granted dispensation to do so wearing re- 
galia; moreover that the order of service should in 
all cases be such as the officiating Minister or his 
superior consider to be appropriate to the occasion." 

The Report of the Quarterly Meeting held on March 13, 
1963, showed that in 1962 there were 7,041 Lodges on the 
Grand Register and 19,700 Certificates had been issued. 
These figures both showed an increase over 1961. Indeed, 
the number of Lodges on the Register is higher than at any 
time during the last ten years. Figures for earlier 
years are not given. During the period under review Lodge 
numbers have gone from 7811 to 7895 inclusive. 

As usual the names conjure up a picture of world-wide 
Masonry. No. 7863 Mfantsiman. Saltpond (Ghana) stands 
out. Of interest in our Grand Jurisdiction is the information 
that Warrant No. 7815 was issued to Bryanston Lodge, 
Bryanston (Transvaal. South Africa). The Bryanston Lodge 
in Ontario is Middlesex 379. 

It was announced that a set of twelve 2 inch by 2 inch 
colour slides, showing various parts of the interior of Free- 
mason's Hall, including one giving a general external view 
of the building, has recently been prepared for use by mem- 
bers of tho Craft. A set may be purchased for £l ($3.00) 
post paid from the Grand Secretary Freemasons' Hall. Great

Lodges, 286 Membership, 69,449 Gain, 898 

Once more this Grand Jurisdiction had a most successful 
year. The gain in membership far exceeded that of other 
jurisdictions when percentages are considered. The Budeet 
Commissio7i mentioned in these Reviews in 1961 and the 
problem of the Grand Lodge of Cuba, described in 1962, were 
still matters of concern. 



14 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Committee on Masonic History reported that they 
were ready to publish the "History of Masonry in Florida." 
It was proposed to print one thousand copies. 

The Grand Lodge appoints a Public Schools Committee 
which exists to keep the Grand Lodge and Grand Master well 
informed on matters pertaining to the public school© which 
they would consider un-Masonic and un-American in any 
way. The Proceedings included a summary of bills passed 
in 1961 relating to education. Much of the legislation pro- 
vides an interesting subject of study, (e.g. that relating to 
driver education and school lunches). It does, however, 
have little apparent Masonic connection. 

Readers of these Reviews of past years will recall that 
several Grand Jurisdictions in the United States exclude 
from membership any person engaged in the business of 
selling liquor. "This subject has created quite a bit of 
confusion in the past years" according to the Grand Master. 
At all District Meetings during the year he stated that he 
felt the present law to be discriminatory. His opinion is 
that the Lodge is the best judge of "material applying for 
initiation" and recommended that the whole issue be left to 
each Particular Lodge to judge. This proposal was approved. 
All petitions of the Particular Lodges, however, carry 
the question "Are you engaged in or connected with any 
business engaged in the sale or manufacture of intoxicating 
liquors, wines or beer?" 

The Grand Orator was Bro. Ralph E. Page, a Past Mas- 
ter from Iowa, and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences 
at the University of Florida. His clear exposition of the 
responsibility of Masons was much too solid and full to be 
abridged here. Suffice to say that it was a memorable 
statement on the subject. 

Two noticeable lodge names in Florida are Pearl of the 
West 146 and Frostproof 229.

The Grand Master made seventeen recommendations in 
his address. Among them were: the creation of a youth 
programme committee to develop and sponsor a programme 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 15 

of youth activities in the subordinate Lodges; the appoint- 
ment of a commission to study the subdivision of large 
Lodges; the authorization for the Educational and Historical 
Commission "to prepare an installation ceremony that would 
be designed for broadcast over television;" the authorization 
for the same committee to adopt an appropriate Master's 
hat. 

The Educational and Historical Commission unveiled 
a marker to the first Provincial Grand Master, Roger Lacey. 
The ceremony took place before approximately 300 people. 
"The marker was prominently placed in the centre of the 
Tybee Road at Thunderbolt," with the consent of the State 
Highway Department. A fine address was given by the Grand 
Master. 

The same Commission also brought up the subject of 
Research Lodges and asked any members interested in the 
formation of such a Lodge to get in touch with the Chair- 
man. They also drew attention to a book written by M. W. 
Bro. E Descombe Wells, P.G.M., "Masonic Melange." 

The Grand Lodge operates a home for children of Masons 
and non-Masons. This year there were ninety-one residents 
of whom fifty-six were not of Masonic connection. Six resi- 
dents were attending college. 

The Grand Lecturer attended one hundred and twenty- 
one meetings during the year. One was the dedication of the 
new Temple of a Lodge with the unique name: Mickey Fuller 
Lodge No. 720.

Eleven Emergent Communications of Grand Lodge were 
held to lay cornerstones. Three were for new Temples. 
In addition one new lodge was dedicated and four were con- 
stituted. A truly fraternal gathering took place when 
M. W. Bro. Cohen a member of the Congregation Children of 
Israel, in Augusta, laid the cornerstone of Oglethorpe Meth- 
odist Church. Atlanta, on June 3, 1962. 

For the first time in over twenty years the Grand Lodge 
shows a loss in membership. The greatest loss came from 
suspensions for non-payment of dues. 



16 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Grand Master told of his visit to the Grand Lodge 
of Canada in the Province of Ontario and graciously added: 
•'This is a very fine session presided over with the dignity 
that our Grand Jurisdiction could well afford to emulate." 

The Educational and Historical Commission issued a 
charter for a Research Lodge, the first one in about twenty- 
five years. A research lodge is organized to do research 
only, and deliver papers at meetings. It cannot confer 
degrees or otherwise do the work of a regular lodge. 

On the recommendation of the Grand Master the Com- 
mission has under way the preparation of a ceremony for 
the public installation of Grand Officers. The Commission 
is also preparing a brochure listing all Masonic markers 
placed throughout Georgia. 

The Special Committee to Study the Size of Lodges found 
itself in a difficult position. They showed that if Lodges 
were limited in size total Masonic growth might be stifled 
by the legislation. At the same time their studies led them 
to believe that smaller lodges are more likely to be dynamic. 
Since the size of lodges is not a matter of discussion only in 
Georgia the well-reasoned comments of the Committee may 
well be given here. 

"When a lodge becomes 'large', a new small lodge could 
be formed in the same manner as new churches or mission 
churches are formed. The problems in doing this, however, 
as a rule relate to the division of physical property — the 
asset* of the lodge. Men who have contributed to a building 
or the purchase of paraphernalia hesitate to abandon their 
'investment' in the physical assets, and too often those other 
members who are interested in their lodge becoming still 
larger claim full title by possession of these assets. This 
annarent selfishness mav be todav the reason that growth 
of Masonic membership in general has nearly halted. 

"In summary, our Committee feels that while the Grand 
Lodge should not at this time limit by legislation the specific 
size of constituent lodges, because there is a need for both 
'large' and 'small' lodges; the Grand Lodge should provide for 
permissive legislation to encourage small lodges to form out 
of large existing lodges. 

"We believe that the large lodges and their interests 
must be protected also. It is not our recommendation to des- 
troy any large lodge but rather for the Grand Lodge to en- 
couage and assist in formation and support of many new 
small lodges, because we believe that the small lodges have 
demonstrated more vitality, a-d they are more consistent in 
their operations with the original principles and teachings of 
the lodge system. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 17 

"The new member can become closely associated with 
and communicate regularly with his lodge brothers. He 
can aspire to work in the lodge. He can improve himself 
in the Masonic arts. He can by precept and example en- 
courage others to apply for membership. The Grand Lodge 
will become noticeably stronger as the years pass on. 

"We therefore recommend that the Jurisprudence Com- 
mittee study and set up laws to be presented to the Grand 
Lodge that will permit a group of members in a lodge to 
petition the Grand Lodge for assistance in forming a new 
lodge, and recognize the vested interest of the members of 
the new lodge, who. through years of dues paid to the mother 
lodge, or through donations, had contributed substantially to 
the ownership of the physical properties of the mother lodge." 

The Grand Master made two firm recommendations: 
that the Code be amended to limit the number of members 
a lodge may have and that any segment of a lodge that de- 
sires to form a lodge may be given its pro rata ownership 
in the lodge propeities. He added an interesting proviso 
"Where desirable several lodges may be formed from a lodge 
and a holding company or trusteeship may be formed so 
that the assets may not be diluted."

The Ancient Landmarks of Freemasonry are mentioned 
no fewer than seven times in the Masonic Code and Digest 
of Idaho. But there has been some question as to what 
they are. As the Grand Master said: "I recommend that 
we in some manner designate the landmarks recognized by 
the Grand Jurisdiction of Idaho so that not only our new 
initiates, but our old members as well, will know what they 
are. It is embarrassing to be asked about anythiner so 
important as the landmarks and not be able to give a definite 
answer." 

A Committee introduced a resolution listing twenty-five. 
The resolution was received and ordered to be printed. It 
may be interesting to readers of these Reviews to know 
what constitutes an Ancient Landmark in Idaho. The list, 
therefore, is given in full. 



18 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

THE ANCIENT LANDMARKS OF FREEMASONRY 

1. The modes of recognition. 

2. The division of symbolic Masonry into three degrees. 

3. The legend of the third degree. 

4. The government of the Fraternity by a presiding officer 
called a Grand Master, who is elected from the body of 
the Craft. 

5. The prerogative of the Grand Master to preside over 
every assembly of the Craft, wheresoever and whenso- 
ever held. 

6. The prerogative of the Grand Master to grant dispensa- 
tions for conferring degrees at irregular times. 

7. The prerogative of the Grand Master to grant dispensa- 
tions for opening and holding Lodges. 

8. The prerogative of the Grand Master to make Masons 
at sight. 

9. The necessity for Masons to congregate in Lodges. 

10. The government of the Craft when so congregated in a 
Lodge, by a Master and two Wardens. 

11. The necessity that every Lodge, when so congregated, 
should be duly tiled. 

12. The right of every Mason to be represented in all gen- 
eral meetings of the Craft. 

13. The right of every Mason to appeal from the decision 
of his Brethren in Lodjre convened, to the Grand Lodge 
or general assembly of Masons. 

14. The right of every Mason to visit and sit in every regu- 
lar Lodge. 

15. That no visitor unknown to the Brethren present, or to 
some one of them as a Mason, can enter a Lodge with- 
out first passing an examination. 

16. That no Lodge can interfere in the business of another 
Lodge. 

17. That every Freemason is amenable to the Laws and 
regulations of the Masonic Jurisdiction in which he 
resides. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 19 

18. That every candidate for initiation must be a man, free- 
born and of lawful age. 

19. A belief in the existence of God as the Grand Architect 
of the Universe. 

20. The belief in a resurrection to a future life. 

21. That a "Book of the Law" shall constitute an indispen- 
sable part of the furniture of every Lodge. 

22. That all men in the sight of God are equal and meet in 
the Lodge on one common level. 

23. That Freemasonry is a society in possession of secrets 
that can not be divulged. 

24. That Freemasonry consists of a Speculative Science, 
founded on an Operative Art. 

25. That the Landmarks of Freemasonry cav. never be 
changed. 

The Chairman of the Committee on Fraternal Relations 
explained that the small number of members in his Grand 
Jurisdiction and the high cost of printing had forced him 
to limit his Reviews to very brief notes. He believed that 
he probably would be "put on the torture rack'' if he turned 
in more than 25 or 30 pages. At the same time he admit- 
ted the interest and worth of the Reviews, which run to 150 
or 175 pages, in the Proceedings of Grand Jurisdictions with 
larger memberships. 

The Grand Historian gave a full account of the Masonic 
careers of Captain Meriwether Lewis and Captain William 
Clark, the great explorers of the Lewis and Clark expedi- 
tion. Lewis took Freemasonry into the Great West and 
played a leading part in its development there. 

The Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Idaho can usually 
be counted on to contain items of interest even though the 
membership may not be large.

Early in the year the Grand Master put forward to the 
Lodges a* programme for Freemasonry in Illinois. He was 
pleased with its enthusiastic reception. 



20 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"This program consisted of five objects to be maintained, 
and fifteen objectives to be attained. The five objects to be 
maintained are basic and fundamental principles necessary 
for the future recognition, welfare and prosperity of this 
institution and we confidently believe that they are founda- 
tion stones upon which the superstructure of Freemasonry 
will stand. They are as follows: 

1. To reaffirm and maintain the supremacy of Ancient 
Craft Masonry over all appendant bodies. 

2. To give emphasis to the supremacy of the constitu- 
ent Lodges in the Grand Lodge. 

3. To inculcate the teachings of Freemasonry in the 
individual Mason. 

4. To create and develop participation in the activities 
of Freemasonry by the individual Mason. 

5. To restore to public acceptance the traditional pres- 
tige and image of Freemasonry. 

"The fifteen objectives to be attained constitute a pro- 
gram of purpose and development for each constituent Lodge. 
They need not all be achieved in one all-out effort but a 
Lodge, by the establishment of a progressive program, ac- 
complishing two or three of them each year, will in a short 
time be a better Lodge and one which will be fulfilling its 
purpose of service to its members, to its community and to 
the Grand Lodge." 

The Grand Master did not enumerate the fifteen 
objectives.

Once again, the Fraternal Reviews printed in these Pro- 
ceedings provide most refreshing reading. As was stated 
here last rear, the Grand Secretarv, statistically-minded M. 
W. Bro. Dwight L. Smith, Grand Master, 1945-46, does the 
reviewing. He overlooks nothing. Only a reviewer of his 
stature could comment as he does. This year his remarks 
on Gi'and Masters' and Grand Orators' addresses stand out. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 21 

These comments reveal clearly some of the elements encoun- 
tered in various Proceedings. 

Of Grand Masters' addresses he said: "Despite my avowed 
intention to draw the mantle of charity over some of 
the passages in Grand Masters' addresses, I find myself by 
degrees astonished and amused. 

"Not once did I catch a Grand Master referring to a 
lectern as a podium, but from that chance occurrence, no 
conclusions should be drawn. Next year, it is quite likely 
that the podium will be back in vogue. 

"Grand Masters still like to use the term Grand Juris- 
diction, even though there is no such animal. It sounds 
good, though — has a sonorous quality that is difficult to 
resist. 

"At least eight Grand Masters' addresses used the 'one 
year ago' theme — one year ago you placed in my hand the 
gavel of authority; one year ago I stood in your presence and 
pledged my best efforts; one year ago I appealed to you, etc., 
etc. 

"At least 13 Grand Masters paid tribute to the 'little 
woman'." Of Grand Orators he said: 

"A Grand Orator is one who orates for the edification 
of the brethren at an annual meeting of a Grand Lodge. 
Indiana has no such officer. 

"I never cease to be amazed at the extent to which Grand 
Orators will go in discussing subjects remote to Freemasonry, 
and oftentimes in direct opposition to our traditional 
position prohibiting discussion of political and con- 
troversial matters. Perhaps little harm is done, although 
I am not so sure of that. The farther we peirnit orators to 
stray from the basic fundamentals of Ancient Craft Free- 
masonry, the more we hack at the landmark which has been 
the source of much of our strength." 

Actually some oi-ators do go very far afield for their 
themes. 

These Reviews, at the same time, provide a most com- 
prehensive survey of Masonry throughout the world. Of 
the decline in membership, the Reviewer put forward a point 
which is almost always overlooked. "Has it not occurred 
to anyone that those segments of the American population 
which are increasing at the greatest rate are segments from 
which Freemasonrv could not expect to draw its member- 
ship?" 



22 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Of the careful statistical analyses' provided by the Grand 
Secretary, one shows that the average membership per lodge 
in Indiana is 336.7, whereas the average a year ago was 338. 
Changes in membership recorded in this way provide a fresh 
point of view and a revealing perspective. 

The Grand Master avoided the pitfalls exposed by his 
Grand Secretary and declared: 

"Great concern has been expressed by Masons- everywhere 
over the matter of poor attendance at our meetings and a 
continuance of the decline in membership. There can be no 
question but that we do face a problem in some areas of our 
State. However, there also is a bright side to the picture. 
As I have travelled the length and breadth of Indiana, as 
your Grand Master, I have conferred with Masonic leaders 
in many, many lodges, both small and large, and I have been 
most pleased with the interest and enthusiasm displayed by 
these brethren. A study of the reports filed by our Grand 
Lecturer and Assistant to the Grand Lecturer give fur- 
ther evidence that the majority of our 547 lodges are guided 
by capable and conscientious officers whose goal is to im- 
prove the status of our Fraternity. Using these factors as 
a barometer it is my personal opinion that the condition of 
the Fraternity in Indiana is good. At this point I would 
like to inject a word of caution. Our Fraternity is only as 
strong or as weak as we permit it to be. The future of 
Indiana Masonry is up to you and me." 



IOWA— 1962

Lodges. 545 Membership, 91,718 Loss, 923 

The Grand Master reported that in spite of losses in 
membership the over-all condition of Masonry in Iowa is 
good. He pointed out three things which should be reme- 
died. Too many members are being suspended for the non- 
payment of dues, entirely too many lodge halls are in a 
state of disrepair and far too many lodges are in a state of 
dormancy. And yet all these conditions could be remedied 
with a little activity on the part of the members. That 
action is being taken on the second matter at least is evi- 
denced by the fact that on five different occasions the Grand 
Lodge was convened for the purpose of dedicating new or re- 
modelled Masonic Temples. In addition the Grand Lodge 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 23 

Officers were called on to lay cornerstones for three Masonic 
Temples and three school buildings. 

The Grand Master was greatly impressed by the fact 
that 1.500 Master Masons attended the Grand Master's Ban- 
quet in Toronto on June 18, 1962, although the delegates 
from all sections of Ontario received no mileage or per diem 
whatsoever. He concluded "Masonry in Canada is serious 
business." 

A visit to the home of Acacia Fraternity on the campus 
of Iowa State University, at Ames, prompted the Grand 
Master to tell something of this organization, already refer- 
red to in the Review of the Proceedings of the Grand Lodge 
of Arkansas. 

This Fraternity was founded in Michigan in 1904. Until 
1931, membership was confined to Master Masons only. The 
rules have been relaxed at various times and now, in addition 
to taking in sons and brothers of Masons, any young man 
who is not a follower of any order which seeks to restrain 
its members from affiliation with Masonic organizations is 
eligible. However, each initiate must be recommended, in 
writing, by two Master Masons. 

Two dispensations not granted during the year were 
requests from lodges to take part in a city centennial parade 
and to hold a public dinner for the purpose of raising money 
for a lodge. 

Once again the Librai'ian's Report reveals an active 
year. The major portion of the microfilming work 
(referred tb in the 1962 Fraternal Reviews) has been com- 
pleted. Cedar Rapids newspapers for over a hundred 
years have been microfilmed, thus guaranteeing the preser- 
vation of important Iowa history. Completed also is the 
microfilming of the Annual Returns of lodges from the earl- 
iest reports through 1958. Many of these projects must be 
much wider in appeal than to Freemasons only. 



IRELAND— 1962 

Annual Report of the St. John's Day Meeting and the 
Report of the Grand Secretary 

Grand Master — M. W. Bro. Raymond F. Brooke 

At the St. John's Day Meeting the Grand Master reported 
that there had been no very exciting events in the Jurisdic- 
tion during the year. He did say, however, that a study of 
the Reports that had come in revealed "a great deal of in- 



24 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

terest and a record of stir and life in all our Provinces and 
Lodges at home and overseas." He particularly drew at- 
tention to the account of the Irish Lodges in Malta, which 
with the Scottish Lodges have subscribed to build a new hall 
for their meetings. He also asked the Brethren when they 
read the report of the Provincial Grand Lodge of South Con- 
naught to remember that all along the Southwest, West and 
Northwest Coasts, in many places where they go for holi- 
days, they can find that Lodges meet somewhere in the 
neighbourhood. Not only would a visit give great pleasure 
to the members, but. he added, it would be a lesson to see 
what a success Brethren make of their regular meetings in 
difficult circumstances. 

The Brethren in Malta are very strict about de- 
corum and deportment in the Lodge. They insist that all 
Officers wear dinner jackets and white gloves and that other 
Brethren attend in dark suits with black ties, the only ex- 
ception to this ruling being in the question of military uni- 
forms and naval shore-going rig. 

The Province of South Connaught is relatively small and 
opportunities for increased membership are somewhat limited 
It is the constant endeavour of all concerned to be vigilant in 
the recruitment of desirable candidates to help maintain the 
prestige and standing generally throughout the Province. 

Much of the Grand Master's Address was given over to 
the Masonic Charities of Grand Lodge which perform a great 
variety of services. The Grand Master concluded: 

"Finally there is what these Charities do for us who per- 
haps are more fortunate. The Grand Lodge Charity Fund, 
a long way the oldest of them all, the Girls' School with al- 
most 200 years' record, the Bovs' School nearly a hundred 
and the Annuity Fund seventy-five years, provide the cement 
that holds our Order together. If you let these slide we 
have nothing to show to the outside world to justify our 
existence and nothing in the way of those Ancient Land- 
marks, Benevolence and Brotherly Love to hold our Order 
together. 

"These great Charities represent our Birthright which 
we have inherited during more than two hundred years from 
our Masonic Ancestors and we must never let it be said that 
the Grand Lodge of Ireland has thrown away its Birthright 
for a mess of pottage."

throughout the world: 49 in the U.S.A., 10 in Europe, 8 in 
Canada. 7 in Australia and New Zealand, 14 in Centra! 
America. 15 in South America and 2 in Asia. Membership 
now totals about 3,000. They meet and operate in the fol- 
lowing 1 languages: 33 in Hebrew; 6 in English; 3 in Arabic; 
2 in French; 7 in German and 1 in Rumanian. 

Two Lodges were consecrated during the year. The 
Grand Master stated, however, "I wish to draw the attention 
of the Brethren that we, in Grand Lodge, hope in the coming 
year to add a further number of Lodges, in different parts 
of the country, including one attached to the Hebrew Univer- 
sity in Jerusalem. It is my firm conviction that this Lodge, 
as well as* others that are under consideration, will assist us 
greatly to secure the continuity of our membership by at- 
tracting many suitable, able young men to our ranks. We 
must prove to the younger generation growing up around 
us. in universities, colleges, public and private service, that 
in Freemasonry they will find an answer to the hopes, pray- 
ers and aspirations of mankind."

The new Grand Master was one of the influential Masons 
who helped to form the present Grand Lodge of Japan. He 
was elected as first Grand Treasurer while at the same time 
serving as Master of his Lodge. The Grand Master has 
ambitions to write a history of the introduction of Masonry 
to Japan. At the moment it would appear that Masonry 
first arrived in Japan in 1862. Because, for many years. 
Freemasonry was not permitted, much research will be nec- 
essary. 

The Grand Secretary's Report shows that membership is 
largely American. There are 100 Japanese, 5 Chinese, 2,976 
Americans and 13 others in the Grand Jurisdiction. The 
photograph of the officers of Grand Lodge, however, shows 
a good proportion of apparently non-American members. 

In addition to the Grand Lodge of Japan, seven Lodges 
from other Grand Jurisdictions are active in Japan: England- 
1; Massachusetts-1 ; Philippines-3; and Scotland-2. 



26 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Committee of Ritual Translation reported that it is 
hoped that, in the verv near future, a draft of a Japanese 
version will be available and that it will be possible to under- 
take the work of preparing the ritual of the First Degree.

Seventeen of the twenty-five Past Grand Maste r s of 
Kansas responded to the roll call by the Grand Secretary. 
Readers of these Reviews, in recent years, will recollect that 
attendance at Grand Lodge has not been high in Kansas. 
However, the Past Grand Masters set a good example. Now 
Kansas has a By-law which requires a Lodge to have repre- 
sentation at Grand Lodge at least one year out of three, or 
show cause. The campaign to improve attendance is proving 
successful. This year only 73 Lodges were not represented 
compared with 152 in 1961. 

The Grand Master drew attention to newly made records 
which may be purchased through the Grand Secretary's 
Office for $2.00 each, post paid, to provide music for degrees.

devoted to a complete roster of all the subordinate Lodges in 
the jurisdiction. Lexington Lodge. No. 1, received its charter 
in 1788. Richardson Lodge, No. 699, has only twenty- 
members but has seven Entered Apprentices. Soldier Lodge. 
No. 708. received it® name because it is held in Soldier. 
Carter County. Slaughters Lodge, No. 347, is so named be- 
cause it meets in a community of the same name. Saturday 
appears to be a popular meeting night for many Lodges. 

During the year the Grand Master wrote a personal 
letter to about 3,600 Masons who had been suspended within 
the previous two years and received a great many letters in 
return. During the year 508 members were reinstated. 

Every member of a Lodge receives the Masonic Home 
Journal twenty-four times a year. Fifty-cents of Grand 
Lodge dues and assessments are earmarked for this purpose. 
An effort is made to publish every newsworthy item concern- 
ing all subordinate Lodges. 

The number of children in the Masonic Widows and Or- 
phans' Home is steadily decreasing. It is now sixty three. At 
the same time the number of widows seeking admission is 
increasing, now standing at one hundred and eighty-five. A 
committee was appointed to consider the possibility of setting 
up a college in some unused school space but recommended 
against the proposal. Twelve students received college schol- 
arships, provided by the Grand Lodge, totalling $7,400. 

In addition to the above Home, the Grand Lodge operat- 
es the Old Masons' Home of Kentucky, with a total care of 
one hundred and twenty-two.

No fewer than five Lodges celebrated their 100th Anni- 
versaries, one celebrated its 150th and Portland Lxlge No. 
1 celebrated its 200th anniversary and also that of Masonry 
in Maine, 

The Grand Master found the general, overall condition 
of Masonry in his jurisdiction to be healthy. Interest and act- 
ivity seemed to be highest in those Lodges where the of- 



28 GEAND LODGE OF CANADA 

ficers, with the help of the Past Masters, under the leader- 
ship of a hard working Master, presented planned program- 
mes. Similarly, interest and activity were greatest in those 
districts where the District Deputies provided suggested 
planned programmes. 

The Grand Lecturer reported that eighteen Schools of 
Instruction were held during the year. The attendance totalled 
1180 Thirty-five per cent of the total roll of officers attend- 
ed. Although the Grand Lecturer felt that this figure was 
low, the schools must have had a beneficial effect through- 
out the Grand Jurisdiction. 

The Grand Lecturer had some sound remarks' to make 
about the ritual. "Requests for approval of 'special charges' 
remain at a minimum, there being only three such requests 
this year. This would seem to indicate a greater apprecia- 
tion and acceptance of the charges in the Maine Masonic 
Text Book as being inclusive of all that need be said at the 
time, and with this your Grand Lecturer will agree. Our 
founding fathers passed on to us a great heritage in Masonic 
light. It is doubtful if you or I could improve upon their 
labors." 

M. W. Bro. R. J. Pollard, Chairman of the Committee 
on Correspondence, gave a short but comprehensive history 
of the first two hundred years of Freemasonry in Maine ._ The 
first paragraph gives a clear account of the beginnings: 
"Regular and duly constituted Freemasonry first came to 
what is now the State of Maine in 1762 when the establish- 
ment of a new Lodge at Falmouth was authorized by the 
R. W. Jeremiah Gridley. Provincial Grand Master for North 
America, under the English Constitution. After a frustrating 
delay, occasioned by the sickness and death of its Master- 
designate, this Lodge at Falmouth, now our Portland Lodge, 
No. 1, was finally organized with ten charter members and 
with Col. William King of the British Army as its Master. 
From this feeble beginning Freemasonry in Maine has grown 
to its present favored position of influence and strength." 

The roster of Maine Masonry is studded thickly with 
the names of the State's most distinguished leaders, jurists, 
military and naval ■commanders, clergymen, professional and 
businessmen. Twenty-nine Governors of the State have been 
members. The speaker concluded these "have all been guided 
in their public life by the pure and beneficial tenets of our 
institution." 

M. Wor. Bro. Pollard wrote most feelingly regarding the 
loss of M. W. Bro. Dunlop whom, rightly, he called "one 
of the greatest Craftsmen of our day." The Reviewer at the 
same time had some gracious remarks to make regarding 
the Review of the Maine Proceeding®.

During the year the Grand Lodge held three Emergent 
Communications for the purpose of laying cornerstones 
of eollegiates. 

The Board of General Purposes held five principal meet- 
ings •with an average attendance of forty-four. The Board 
reported that in spite of difficulties experienced by many 
Lodges, owing to changing local conditions, six Lodges 
changed, improved or built new lodge halls. 

The Grand Historian, M. W. Bro. W. Douglas, gave a 
detailed history of the comer of Portage and Main. Winni- 
peg, and included the Masonic events that were centred at or 
very close to the corner. The first Lodge in Western 
Canada met in a room near by. At one time five city 
Lodges met in a building at the corner. Grand Loc'.are also 
had its office and operated a reading room there. This was 
the centre of Freemasonry in Winnipeg until 1894 when the 
building was destroyed by fire. Many valuable Craft re- 
cords and relics were lost. The Proceedings show that the 
Grand Historian has presented twenty-two addresses 
Masonic history in Manitoba. These, if drawn together, 
would make a volume of between two and three hundred 
pages. Let us hope that some time they may be published 
as a unit.

Once again the Grand Master called attention to the 
plight of the Lodges in Baltimore as a result of the popu- 
lation shift. Outside that city the Lodges are showing 
increases. 



30 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Committee on Masonic History continued the com- 
pilation of materials relating to the history and activities of 
Grand Lodge. They also njoted, with approval, a change 
in the format of the annual Proceedings. They were well 
justified as the new format is most attractive. 

Although the Jurisdiction suffered a loss in membership, 
the first time since 1941, it was slight and not significant. 
The Grand Master pointed out that, as a garden thrives better 
after it is weeded, Masonry in Maryland will be stronger 
after the weeding-out process is completed. Mlost of the 
Lodges are in good condition. Several new Temples have 
been dedicated and others are being planned. Many im- 
provements have been achieved with volunteer labour. 
Many Lodges are incx'easing their dues and fees. "This is 
a.- it should be" is the opinion of the Grand Master.

Although the winter of 1860-61 was marked by increas- 
ing tension in the United States, culminating in the Civil 
War. Freemasonry was active in New England. Three new 
Lodges were chartered in 1861 in Massachusetts: Aberdour, 
Orient and Pythagorean. These Lodges celebrated their hun- 
dredth anniversaries with Special Communications of the 
Grand Lodge. As is the custom in Massachusetts, extensive 
histories of each Lodge are included in the Proceedings. There 
is a record in the Orient Lodge history showing that in May, 
1867. a Lodge in Winchester. Virginia, asked for aid as its 
quarters had been destroyed in the war. Though feelings ran 
high between North and South, the barriers were removed 
when it came to Masonry. Orient Lodge, the record shows, 
did its share to help. 

To come to the present, the report on the Masonic Home 
revealed something of the great variety in the activities of 
different Grand Jurisdictions. In Massachusetts much was 
done to improve the quality of the dairy herd at the Masonic 
Home. By improved feeding and herd management it was 
hoped almost to double the production of milk. During the 
year the number of residents in the Home averaged 125 with 
an average age of 82 years and five months.

The returns showed 4,017 members in the Canal Zone 
Masonic District, a gain of two. 240 in the Chile Masonic 
District, a loss of 8, and 412 in the China Masonic District, 
no change.

For some reason the Proceedings were not reviewed last 
year but fortunately a review of the 100th Annual Commun- 
ication and Centennial can be included here. The RevieAv 
for 1960 reported that the Grand Master recommended that 
the Centennial be celebrated in 1965 as some of the Annual 
Communications had been interim meetings only. How- 
ever, other counsels evidently prevailed and we have before 
us a most attractive gold-coloured volume described as 
"Centennial Issue." 

Fittingly, the preamble is a brief history of York Rite 
Masonry in Mexico. The first mention is 1806. Tn 1824 
a York Rite Grand Lodge, composed of five constituent 
Lodges, obtained a charter from the Grand Lodge of New 
York. But wars, revolutions and political parties took their 
toll and only one Lodge was able to exist. 

The most significant year was 1911 when the Grand 
Lodge took its present name and began to work English. 
The constituent Lodges of the "York Grand Lodge of Mexico'' 
have a membership of many nationalities including English- 
speaking Mexican citizens. 

The Proceedings state: "While sojourning in Mexico, 
visitors from Grand Lodges in the United States and the 
British Commonwealth of Nations will find Masonry as they 
know it, in the Constituent Lodges working under this 
Grand Jurisdiction."

Master not only is a Professor at the University of Michi- 
gan but for the past twenty years has been Chief Marshal 
of the University's Commencements. The biography in 
the Proceedings also informs us that one hundred and forty- 
five years ago, two thirds of the money needed to construct 
the first building of the University, which is the nation's 
oldest state institution of higher learning, was provided by 
the Freemasons of the period. 

The Committee concerned reported that the first volume 
of the History of Freemasonry in Michigan is in the hands 
of the printer. This volume will include the pre-Grand 
Lodge in 1826. Great care is being taken to insure accuracy. 
During the course of the sixty-two years covered, the names 
of many great Americans and British appear. Hundreds of 
orders tor the volume have already been received. This 
work should have appeal also to Masons in Ontario. Ties 
between the Grand Lodge of Michigan and our Grand Lodge 
have always been close. 

Work is proceeding on a second volume to cover the nine- 
teenth century. "Once again, the names of many great 
statesmen, industrial giants, immortals of the world of sport, 
and literary pundits will appear in its pages." 

The Board of General Purposes reported on attendance 
at Grand Lodge. They concluded that "It would appear 
that the main reason for a Lodge not being represented is 
a lack of knowledge of the Inherent and Corporate Rights of 
a Lodge which are conferred by its Charter." The solution, 
the Committee believed, is more a matter of education than 
legislation. There had been some suggestion that non-at- 
tendance be penalized.

On February 24, 1853, three Lodges bound themselves 
together as the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted 
Masons of Minnesota. The total membership on that day- 
was 124. From then on progress was constant and each year 
saw a net gain This year, for the first time, a net loss was 
recorded and strangely enough the figure was also 124. Al- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 33 

though the loss was less than one fifth of one per cent it was 
disturbing 

The Grand Master made some profound remarks on the 
matter. "The fact that we are in gocd company in our loss 
of membership in no way lessens our individual responsibility 
nor our individual cause for concern. It is our duty and our 
responsibility alone to meet the criticisms and the compe- 
titions of the modern World. Excuse and explanation, self- 
satisfying though they may be, will get us nothing. Every 
Mason must openly, conscientiously and intelligently, take 
his place in his own Community and bear his full share of 
individual responsibility to it. 

''On the other hand, membership of itself Ls neither all- 
important, nor is it the sole indication of fraternal stability 
and well-being. Quantity can never rightfully take precedence 
over stability." 



Among the recommendations of the Grand Master was 
the appointment of a Grand Librarian and a Grand Hisitor- 
ian. One decision authorized a Lodge to "tape" music used in 
symbolic degrees, for use in Lodges not having other mus- 
ical facilities.

Once again the Report on Fraternal Correspondence, 
prepared by Bro. C. C. Buchanan, is a document which re- 
veals much reading and thought on the part of the compiler. 
He repoi-ted that cordial fraternal relations had been 
resumed with the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia. He then 
told of the "usual percentage of Grand Masters' reports" 
telling "of difficulties centered upon poor lodge attendance, 
the stiff competition offered by television, organized sports 
and the like, and about the usual number of special dispensa- 
tions have been granted, reprimands sriven, and questions 
answered" and concluded "Like the poor, these problems 
have ever been with us and ever shall be." 

His most original observation, and yet one which seems 
to be borne out by the evidence, has to do with the strength 
of character of Grand Masters. He wrote: 



34 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"If there is any one trend that I have found this year 
it is in the direction of more Grand Masters displaying the 
fortitude to take actions and make decisions which, while 
they may not have met with popular approval and acclaim, 
constituted the only just and proper course under the cir- 
cumstances and the law. It has seemed to us that for the 
past year or two there has been either (1) a considerable 
increase in the need for stern disciplinary measures, or (2) 
a generation of Grand Masters more of whom have the con- 
viction that enforcement of the codes, both moral and Mas- 
onic, is essential to the continued welfare of the Masonic 
fraternity. Traditionally, this attitude characterized our 
leaders of the past, and it is heartening to find a resurgence 
of insistence on rectitude by those who direct the destinies of 
our Grand Lodges." 

The Grand Master for 1962-63, installed on February 14, 
was M. W. Bro. J. Allen Cabaniss. He is an ordained Pres- 
byterian minister who has held many charges in Mississippi. 
He holds a Ph.D. degree in history from the University of 
Chicago and is now Professor of History in the University of 
Mississippi. He has published a volume on the history of 
the University and another on the History of Freemasonry 
in Mississippi.

The Grand Master in his address expressed many sound 
views for, as he said: > "As I have traveled over the State 
in order to attend all kinds of fraternal gatherings and cere- 
monies, I have been impressed by the inner strength of our 
order by the solid, substantial type of men whom I have met- 
by their unquestioned attachment to and affection for their 
brethren and by their very genuine interest in the welfare 
of our fraternity." 

At the same time he admitted that there 'are current 
problems. Freemasonry in our jurisdiction is, we all re- 
alize, encountering some adverse winds. In our rural areas 
our lodges are seriously affected by the continuing loss of pop- 
ulation to the larger urban or industrial centers. Lodge 
membership has, of course, been affected by this movement 
of people. In the larger cities, particularly in St. Louis 
and Kansas City, we are plagued by the shifting of popula- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 35 

tion from the older or downtown areas to the newer neigh- 
borhoods or to the surrounding' suburban areas and this 
movement not only hurts lodge attendance but it contributes 
to the obsolescence of many fine Masonic properties. 

"A far more fundamental problem occurs in both rural 
and city areas — the noticeable lack of applications from the 
younger generation of Americans who constitute the real life 
blood of our lodges of tomorrow. Brethren, I can offer 
no panacea for these troublesome trends — no ready solutions 
present themselves. But this much I do know — that if we 
are determined and if we apply intelligent thinking to the 
problem and if we are willing to work rather than just hope 
for the best, we can turn the tide of inactivity and apathy 
which has been running against us." 

One remedy he proposed was the devotion of more 
thought to the selection of lodge officers. This solu- 
tion constantly recurs. 

The Masonic Review by M. W. Bro. B. H. Hunt, P.G.M., 
is a most comprehensive and informative document. In 
commenting on declining membership he pointed out certain 
facts which generally escape the attention of those speaking 
and writing of the matter. Although there is some apparent 
shrinkage of members, in the face of an increasing popula- 
tion, the age group covering the years twenty-one to fifty, 
from which candidates generally come, actually is not in- 
creasing. The real increase is in those born in the middle 
1940's and those who are living longer. And at that, the 
shrinkage is not very great. "Statistical figures for the 
year 1961 reveal that there were 4,086,499 Masons in the 
United States. This figure represents a decrease over the 
last year of 12,720, or only .34 per cent — almost exactly one 
third of one per cent. Can this be as alarming as some 
profess to believe?" 

His conclusion was: "If our appraisal of the situation 
is eoirect, it will be borne out within the next ten years, if 
we are able to interest these young men in the principles of 
Freemasonry. Throughout the history of the institution a 
certain pecentage of the good men in every community have 
become members of the Craft. We are living in a rapidly 
changing world, but the basic beliefs of man remain un- 
altered. The fundamentals of Freemasonry have not changed. 
Therefore, our only problem is to make certain that these 
basic truths for which the fraternity stands come to the at- 
tention of the young men who will be appearing on the scene 
in a relatively few years. Quite possibly there could be a 
resurgence of Masonic interest and activity in the years 
which lie immediately ahead".

The Gnand Master attended Montana's highest Masonic 
meeting on the top of the Cooke City Highway, at an alti- 
tude of 9,600 feet. He also told that his Grand Jurisdiction 
enjoys some of the finest outdoor meetings it is possible to 
have. Masonry got its start in the State in an open air 
meeting on the top of Mullan Pass one hundred years ago. 
Four Lodges planned to unite to celebrate the event. 

The Grand Master attended the Banff Conference, as a 
guest, and was so impressed by the topics of discussion that 
he asked his Grand Secretary to secure copies of the Pro- 
ceedings for all his Grand Lodge officers. 

Montana has a unique ring, made from a nugget found 
in the State by Samuel Word, the Grand Master in 1886. to 
be passed on to his successors. It has been worn by each 
Grand Master of Montana since. The retiring Grand Mas- 
ter wisely recommended that to save this irreplaceable relic, 
an emblem of the early ties between the beginnings of the 
State and the Fraternity, it be worn only at annual or special 
communications of Grand Lodge. He also recommended 
that a copy be made for everyday wearing. 

The Grand Master recommended that the Masonic Code 
of Montana, which excludes dealers in liquor from member- 
ship, be amended and the matter left to the individual lodges. 
The Committee on Codification, however, recommended no 
change. The ensuing discussion produced much well-thought- 
out comment. One member, W. Bro. Elton Andrew, went 
back to Anderson's Constitution of 1723. He quoted: 
"Behaviour when lodge is over and the brethren not gone 
you may enjoy yourselves with innocent mirth, treating one 
another according to ability but avoiding excess, or forcing 
any brother to eat or drink beyond his inclination." The 
only other place where alcoholic beverages are referred to 
in the Ancient Book of Constitutions, he said, dealt with 
behaviour at home and in one's own neighbourhood. "You 
must alsto consult your health by not continuing together too 
late or too long from home after lodge hours are past; and 
by avoiding gluttony or drunkenness, that your family be 
not neglected nor injured were you disabled from working." 
It says much for the early Masonic writers that their views 
can be of such practical application so many years after they 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 37 

were written. Likewise, the introduction of the comments 
speaks well for the knowledge of Masonic writing displayed 
by the members. Incidentally, the matter under discussion 
was referred to a committee of five to be brought up in a 
year.

Lodges, 275 Membership, 45,863 Loss, 204 

The Fraternal Review section of the Proceedings stands 
out. The Reviews are written by M. W. Bro. W. B. Wanner, 
Grand Master of Nebraska, 1943. In 1962 he completed his 
fifteenth year as a reviewer, and an outstanding one too. 
Of reviewing, he says with knowledge and understanding: 
"The annual history that each Grand Lodge produces always 
presents an exciting question: What will I find here for a 
topical review? Sometimes nothing, sometimes much,. 
It is not a dull task, although sometimes tedious, but it is 
really a job." He might have added that one of the slow 
tasks is adding up the roll of Lodges to find the number 
shown at the head of each review. In some Proceedings the 
total is nowhere given. 

In 1962 M. W. Bro. Wanner saw seventy volumes of Pro- 
ceedings and found that of these only thirty-nine published 
Reviews. To his mind W. Bro. J. W. Cook, who writes the 
Reviews for the District of Columbia, is one of the best. 
With only thirty-nine in the world, apparently, Reviewers 
perhaps should set up a correspondence circle and share the 
work among them. 

The Grand Master ruled that leasing a building to a 
liquor licensee did not constitute a Masonic offense. Those 
engaged in the sale of intoxicating liquors are denied mem- 
bership in Masonic Lodges in Nebraska. 

The Grand Historian W. Bro. Rosenlof completed his 
history of the Grand Lodge and the work was ready for 
distribution. The Grand Lodge then agreed to publish an 
account of all the Grand Masters and another on the Grand 
Orations given at Grand Lodge meetings. 

Speaking on the State of the Craft, the Grand Master 
reported that two Lodges had lost their buildings by fire. 
In conclusion he stated: "It would be inaccurate to report 



38 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

all is favourable in our Craft. Many of our subordinate 
Lodges have the capacity for marked improvement and only 
need real leadership to forge ahead. Since January there 
has been a marked increase in activity in a number of our 
Lodges and we hope the trend of poor attendance and loss 
of membership has been stopped. We have regained all 
but 18 of the 204 lost in 1961." 

No fewer than seventeen Lodsre secretaries have served 
more than twenty-five years. Three have served forty, 
forty-one and forty-two years respectively. 

Two Lodges had failed to be represented at the last two 
Annual Communications and were cited to appear before the 
Committee on Charters and Dispensations. 

We find that inadvertently in these Reviews for 1961 we 
reported a membership of 44,067 when actually the figure 
should have been 46,067, hence the recorded loss of 204 when 
the membership stood at 45,863. 

Though this Review has become somewhat lengthy it 
would be a shame not to conclude with the final paragraph 
of the Report of the Grand Custodian. 

"The principles on which Masonry is founded are not 
out of date and never will be. It is far more enduring than 
any of the clubs and appendages of Masonry or any of the 
trivial and inconsequential things we do nowadays instead 
of seeking the truths and an adequate understanding of 
Masonry's teachings. It is not Masonry that is out of date. 
It is men, the men who wear its emblems, yet fail to have 
the slightest understanding of its meaning and its teachings, 
its symbols and its ceremonies. In spite of men of this 
type, and rot because of them. Masonry will continue to be 
a source of good in the world until time shall be no more."

FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 39 

Membership in the larger urban areas is increasing but 
in some of the smaller Ledges in remote areas the condition 
is static. However, this Grand Jurisdiction, unlike some 
others in the United States, permits plural memberships. 
Many of tbe smaller Lodges have benefitted from the af- 
filiation of such members, many with wide Masonic experi- 
ence, The "Masonic Code" of Nevada states "No Lodge shall 
collect any fee for affiliation." 

Special Communications were convened no fewer than 
twelve times for the purpose of laying cornerstones. Most 
of the buildings were educational institutions. The general 
public fully accepts these ceremonies. 

In Nevada, as in many other Grand Jurisdictions in the 
United States, the Grand Master proclaims a Public School 
Week requiring all Lodges to observe the week by means 
of suitable programmes. The Grand Master felt, however, 
that there was a lack of interest displayed by the Lodges in 
■this regard. 

In all his visits to Constituent Lodges the Grand Master 
stressed the necessity for sound leadership. He pointed out 
that appointments, leading ultimately to the Master's chair 
and even to the Grand Master's, should be carefully consid- 
ered. Indeed, he recommended, in the case of the Grand 
Lodge, that "ladder promotion" apply only to elected officers.

The Grand Master reported that in spite of the decrease 
of eighteen, recorded in total membership, the state of the 
Order was good. The ritual woik in all Lodges has shown 
a distinct improvement thanks to the work of the Ritual 
Committee, the District Deputies and the District meetings. 
The Board of General Purposes reviewed the financial status 
of Grand Lodge and found it sound. 

The Grand Historian gave a full account of major events 
in the Grand Jurisdiction during the year. To him the high- 
light was in laying the cornerstone of the fine new Temple 
recently built by Sussex Lodge No. 4, in Dorchester. It had 
been a long time since such a ceremony had been performed 
in the Jurisdiction. 



40 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Grand Historian also reported that the Ritual Com- 
mittee are continuing their efforts toward establishing- a 
uniform rendering of the Ritual. One observation of the 
Committee was: "In a great number of Lodges it is seemingly 
a practice to substitute electric lights for burning tapers, 
which practice we believe should be stopped and burning 
tapers used, particularly in the Entered Apprentice De- 
gree." 

The D.D.G.M. for District No. 2 reported further on 
Sussex Lodge No. 4, Dorchester, referred to above. He 
stated that the members had erected a very fine Temple and 
with pride claimed the distinction of having designed and 
erected their building with craftsmen of their own Lodge. 
Altogether they spent less than $40.00 on labour. Such 
achievements are worthy of commendation.

Few Proceedings appear in such full form and as at- 
tractively printed as those of the Grand Lodge of New Hamp- 
shire. The comparatively lengthy reports of the District 
Deputy Grand Masters of the eight Masonic Districts reveal 
much activity and interest. 

During the year, actually in the short space of three 
months, the Grand Jurisdiction lost three Past Grand Mas- 
ters; M. W. Bros. P. H Bennett, 1959-60; W. E. Dun-lap. 
1953-54; and J. O. Lovejoy. 1945-46. As the Grand Master 
of this Grand Jurisdiction serves two years, the Grand East 
has been sorelv depleted. The names of eight Past Grand 
Masters now show on the roll. 

Once again a major part of the Proceedings is devoted 
to Reviews superbly done by M. W. Bro. H. O. Cady. In his 
Foreward he makes a sound comment: ''With reference to 
Masonic Education, many Grand Lodares require that the 
newly raised Master Mason learn the lesson of the Master 
Mason degree, as he has learned the previous lessons. It is 
unfortunate that this is not the law in every Grand Jurisdic- 
tion^ and that such a requirement is opposed by many who 
are interested in Masonic Education. It does not seem' to be 
consistent. Our own Grand Lodge has discarded this require- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 41 

ment, although we spend considerable every year for Masonic 
Education." 

In addition the Reviewer did an almost incredible amount 
of work in summarizing lodge totals, membership totals, 
gains and losses in the Grand Jurisdictions in the United 
States, Canada and Australia. 

His totals are as follows:

The Grand Lodge met in Emergent Communication to 
celebrate the One Hundred and Seventy-fifth Anniversary of 
its formation. In 1786 there were only six Grand Lodges 
in the United States, placing New Jersey as one of the oldest 
in the country. M. W. Bro. C. B. Folley, Grand Master at 
the 150th anniversary, reviewed the history of the past 
twenty-five years. During this period 13 new lodges were 
warranted and membership increased bv 25.000 or about 
thirty percent over the 1936 total of 82,500. 

In looking to the future the speaker gave wise counsel: 
"In the coming years it might be well for us to examine more 
closely than ever the list of suspensions for non-payment of 
dues. If we can reduce this particular group, totaling 3.528 
in the past s^ven years, we will have taken a long step for- 
ward in stabilizing our rosters and possibly eliminate the 
necessity of taking this drastic and unpleasant action each 
year. Another phase of this problem would be to exercise 
more care and caution in examining those who knock at our 
doors so that we may be reasonably sure of their motives 
and purposes in joining our numbers. As we turn toward 
our 200th anniversary, we could do no better than bo study 
and analyze this problem with the aim of strengthening our 
entire structure. When we elect a man to the degrees of 
Freemasonry, we should know that his desire comes from a 
sincere wish to be of service to his fellow creatures." 



42 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The Master of St. John's Lodge No. 1, Newark, presented 
a brief but interesting- history of his Lodge, constituted May 
13, 1761. He was followed by the Master of Trenton Lodge, 
No. 5, constituted in 1787. Freemasonry has had a long and 
active history in New Jersey. 

II W. Bro. J. C. Barbour, P.G.M., gave an account of the 
development of the Masonic Home. The matter of a home 
was discussed as early as 1855 but no action was taken until 
1897. The then new home was dedicated in 1898. At the 
same time a permanent fund was set up. Today it amounts 
to well over six million dollars. 

A dinner and finally a play, depicting the founding of 
the Grand Lodge of New Jersey, ended the celebrations, at- 
tended by 2,400 Masons. The outstanding success of this 
occasion was attributed to the cooperation of all those 
concerned. 

At the Annual Communication the Grand Master recom- 
mended that a 200th Anniversary Fund be set up to which 
$750.00 should be credited each year. The Grand Lodge 
concurred but added the provision that all interest from the 
fund should be invested and reinvested in it. Evidently the 
Grand Lodge of New Jersey looks forward as well as back.

In several Grand Jurisdictions in the United States 
plural and even dual memberships are not permitted The 
thinking behind such a regulation is not too clear. But the 
Grand Master admitted that there had been some anxiety 
over the usp which might be made of plural membership. 
He recommended that dual membership be granted Lodges of 
concurrent jurisdiction. As he said: "The principal service 
such a change in by-laws would render would be to allow new 
Lodges to have access to trained Masons in their formative 
years." One could well wonder how any new Ledge could 
be organized if the charter members were all forced to give 
up membership in their own Lodges first. The Grand 
Master was on firm ground and the recommendation was 
approved. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 43 

His recommendation that consideration be given to al- 
lowing all Lodge Secretaries the right to vote in Grand Lodge, 
in view of their experience and other qualifications, was not 
approved. 

The Grand Lecturer had some sound conclusions to make 
on a much discussed subject. "Concern regarding poor 
lodge attendance has become a statewide and nationwide sub- 
ject for discussion. Suggestions for general overall im- 
provement seem however to be few and far between. It is 
the opinion of your Grand Lecturer that no general method 
will serve to improve local conditions. Strong, energetic 
and dedicated officers constitute the force that makes or 
keeps a Lodge active and alive."

In concluding his address at a special communication the 
Grand Master presented a well expressed view of the poten- 
tial plan of Freemasonry in the world. 

"World affairs continue to be in a chaotic condition and 
the spirit of human Brotherhood, tolerance and understanding 
does not prevail among the nations. It behoves us as 
Masons to encourage the highest aspiration of all men to en- 
deavour to create the bond of Brotherhood, character building 
and integrity and it is therefore cur duty as Freemasons to 
inspire our fellow citizens by precept and example, to assert 
the value of spiritual over the material side of life, a rever- 
ence of God and the application of the Golden Rule. These 
influences, I am sure, would be of great assistance in bring- 
ing stability to world affairs. I appeal to my brethren to 
practice outside the Lodge those principles and precepts 
taught within." 

A number of the members throughout the Jurisdiction 
assisted in a project sponsored by the Royal Blind Society 
of N.S.W.. which aims to furnish two thousand blind people 
in the State with tape talking book machines. In recognition 
of their practical interest the Society presented one of the 
machines to the Immediate Past Master of Lodge Liverpool, 
No. 197, who. although totally blind, performs his ritualistic 
work and duties in an exemplary manner.

In addition to the lodge and membership figures given 
here, the Grand Lodge of New York has a District Grand 
Lodge of Syria-Lebanon with eleven lodges and 1,197 
members. 

The Grand Master devoted some time to the loss of 
membership. "It may well be that in a modern technolo- 
gical Society, fraternal organizations, such as ours, will face 
ever-increasing competition with the distractions of everyday 
life," he affirmed, but added "We should not be discouraged 
In the face of such competition we should simply resolve to 
make our fraternity stronger and more responsive to the 
needs of our times. Masonry must be a vigorous, virile 
and articulate voice in the cause of humanity and justice 
throughout the world." 

The areas of Masonic activity in New York State are so 
numerous that the Grand Master could not touch on them 
all. He did tell, however, of the plans to construct a new 
wing to provide one hundred extra beds at the Hospital and 
Infirmary of the Masonic Home in Utica. One might call 
this a twenty-two million dollar corporation. A million 
and a half dollars a year is required to keep it going. 

Another activity of the Grand Lodge is the Masonic 
Research Laboratory which is at present engaged in re- 
search on gerontology, the diseases of old age. 

The Masonic Benevolence Committee, additionally, has 
done extremely effective work in caring for the aged and 
distressed within their own communities. Altogether, New 
York stands out for the volume and variety of its work for 
benevolence. 

The question of a new Masonic Temple in New York City 
has exercised the Grand Lodge for some time. A few years 
ago a committee was set up to investigate the problem. They 
reported that however desirable a new Grand Lodge Building 
might be it would be unwise to embark on such a programme 
at this time. 

One major change being undertaken at the 23rd Street 
Building is the substitution of electric organs at the rate of 
two a year in the place of the existing ancient organs.

In the course of a year a reviewer reads many addres- 
ses and, though they vary in content, through all, one sees 
the honest intent and indeed dedication which must be pre- 
sent beflore a member of the Craft takes on the onerous duties 
of Grand Master. While it is not the duty of a reviewer to 
make comparisons, some addresses must stand out. This 
year the address of M. W. Bro. Prideaux is the one. Not 
only did he put forward, in their completeness, those ideas 
which we hear so often but he found a fresh point of view. 

"For very many years — we might almost say from time 
immemorial — it has been the established custom for the 
newly installed Grand Master at this stage to read an ad- 
dress to the brethren assembled. This gathering we are 
attending today is the Annual Communication, or in other 
words the annual general meeting, of the Grand Lodge of 
Free and Accepted Masons of New Zealand. . . . 

"At most conferences of this kind the nature of the or- 
ganisation and the justification for its existence are clearly 
defined and widely comprehended. I venture the opinion, 
however, that very few of us here could, if called upon, fur- 
nish a clear statement as to what Freemasonry is and for 
what purpose it really exists. Every Entered Apprentice 
Freemason, of course, is required to know, before he can be 
passed to the Second Degree, that Freemasonry is a peculiar 
system of morality, veiled in allegory, and illustrated by 
symbols, and that the principles on which the Order is foun- 
ded are brotherly love, relief, and truth. Apart 
from this, practically the only other information readi'.y 
available to us is of a negative nature. We are told that 
Freemasonry is not a religion, not a secret society, not a 
social club, not a benefit society not this and not that. Tt 
would appear, however, that although our Order cannot be 
classified under any one of the foregoing headings to the ex- 
clusion of the others, it vet possesses to a degree some of 
the characteristics of each." 

After dealing at some length with what he called the 
negative classifications he went on to define affirmatively 
our aims and objects. 

"It has often been said that although Freemasonry can- 
not make a bad man good, it can and in most cases does make 



46 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

a good man better. We do not, of course, attempt to make 
bad men good, because in the first place we take every pre- 
caution to ensure that none such are ever admitted to mem- 
bership of our Order. We do not devote ourselves to seeking 
out and gathering into the fold those whom we consider in 
need of spiritual or moral refoimation. On the con- 
trary, we take no steps to induce anyone to become one of 
our numbers, but take a very definite stand that all our can- 
didates must already be just and upright men of good repute 
who of their own free will and accord seek to be ranked 
among our members. Furthermore, we make it quite clear 
to them that their desire for admission must be based not on 
mercenary or other unworthy motives but on a favourable op- 
inion preconceived of our institution, and a sincere wish to 
render themselves more extensively serviceable to their fellow 
creatures. 

"Having by these means assembled a body of men with 
fundamentally a proper outlook on life, by our teachings we 
endeavour to strengthen and encourage them in the carrying 
out of their good principles. In this worthy objective the 
moral interpretations of the uses of the tools of the 
operative Mason play a very important part. By this means 
the significance of the great moral principles and virtues is 
expounded to us in more detail and in a more comprehensible 
manner than that to which we have been accustomed. We 
are urged to endeavour t/a make a daily advancement in Ma- 
sonic knowledge, and even if our effort in this direction con- 
sists of little more than reading, re-reading, and making a 
deep study of our ritual, nothing but good can result. 

"However, a deeper understanding of the tenets and 
principles of our Order must always remain the first objective 
of our advancement in Masonic knowledge, and in my opinion 
there is no doubt that the mlost effective method of attaining 
this objective is bv attendance at the regular and instruction 
meetings of our Lodges. There, such advancement is ac- 
quired bv study of the inner meaning of the ritual and the 
antient charges, from lectures and addresses delivered by the 
Grand Lecturers and other experienced and qualified 
brethren, and by friendly association and free discussion 
with our brethren. The advancement in Masonic knowledge 
thus obtained is, however, no true advancement unless it 
results in ever increasing practice of and living up to the 
principles inculcated. It is thus that we are able to sub- 
stantiate our claim that membership of our Order tends to 
make us better men. better citizens, better husbands, and 
better fathers. This brings us to one of the reasons we 
furnished in support of our initial desire to gain admittance. 
We have seen the direction in which Masonic education tends 
to help us to live better lives, but just in what way we render 
ourselves more extensively serviceable to our fellow creatures 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 47 

is not at first glance so obvious. What advancement we 
have made within the Lodge has been achieved as a result 
of ithe precept and example ever before us, the precept of 
the Masonic interpretations of the moral code and the ex- 
ample of many worthy brethren. 

"As regards the world at large, we can do a very great 
deal without broadcasting the precepts above referred to, 
or by advertising the fact of our association with the Craft. 
You will find that by practising in your daily lives the prin- 
ciples laid down and exemplified for us, you will be accepted 
as most desirable members of your community. You will 
also have the inner satisfaction of knowing that indirectly, 
by the force of your own example, you are proving of mater- 
ial assistance to all those with whom you come in contact. 
Throughout history, many of our members, having risen to 
eminence by merit, have lived respected and died regretted 
and. although we may not be altogether justified in doing 
so, we feel that our teachings have been at least an impor- 
tant factor in the attainment of these happy results." 

The reports of the Provincial Grand Masters, each of 
whom has a province or district under his charge, show 
that Freemasonry is progressing and harmony prevails 
throughout the Jurisdiction. A reader of these Proceedings 
is left with the feeling that he would particularly enjoy Ma- 
sonic association with his New Zealand Brethren.

When the night session of the first day opened, the Ch : et 
Justice and two Associate Justices of the Supreme Cov. 
North Carolina and the Governor of the State, all members 
of the Craft, were received. 

The Grand Jurisdiction is divided into fifty-seven dis- 
tricts and the Grand Master was able to attend all fifty- 
seven district meetings. District Deputies are required to 
serve for three years before they become entitled to the 
honorary title of Past District Deputy Grand Master. 

The one hundred and seventy-fifth anniversary celebra- 
tion was held on April 18. The first part of the celebra- 
tion was a pageant in three acts depicting the organization 



48 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

of the Grand Lodge of North Carolina in Tarborough (Tar- 
boro). N.C., December 9-13, 1787. The second part of the 
programme was an address by the Hon. J. Terry San- 
ford, the Governor of the State. 

The Governor, after showing how Masonry had flourished 
numerically in the iState, added that to emphasize num- 
bers would be to miss the point. From the very moment 
of its inception as a Grand Lodge. Freemasonry has been 
able to boast of some of the greatest names and stoutest 
hearts the State has ever known. The first Grand Master 
was elected Governor the same year as he was elected Grand 
Master and twice later. He added that of the last sixty 
Governors of North Carolina thirty-eight were Master 
Masons and eight also served as Grand Master. 

"Masonry in North Carolina" he declared "has made, 
from those beginnings, a deep imprint upon the govern- 
mental structure of the State, upon the economic and pro- 
fessional life, in every area, in fact, in which they have 
lived and worked. Masons have never considered them- 
selves as an isolated part of the community, but in every 
instance having insisted that the ideals and fundamentals of 
Freemasonry should become a part of the tremendous cur- 
rents of civic, political, and religious life that flow through 
every community." 

The incoming Grand Lodge officers were installed in a 
Ceremony of Open Installation. Mrs. Ricker and three child- 
ren of the Grand Master were present. All visitors were 
excused before labour was resumed and the Grand Lodge 
closed.

The Report of the Committee on the Condition of Free- 
masonry was presented by the Junior Grand Warden. The 
Committee received reports from onlv 108 Lodges. Attend- 
ance at regular meetings is a problem. Those reporting 
showed a minimum of seven in attendance and a maximum 
of 40. The mean average attendance was 16.7 and the 
median average 15 members per meeting. 

Annual dues vary from $6.50 to $15.00. The Committee 
did question how a Lodge could operate at the lower figure 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 49 

when they pay $3.50 per capita to the Grand Lodge. One 
small Lodge of 32 members, after some years of inactivity, 
received seven petitions and raised three during the year. 

The Committee recommended that all Lodges consider 
raising their dues to at least $10.00 per year. 

Considering the size and budget of this Grand Jurisdic- 
tion the Library is outstanding. Disbursements amounted 
to over $10,000. Many loams are made by mail and the stu- 
dent body of two colleges nearby have used the Library 
extensively. The Committee in charge stated their opinion 
that the Masonic Grand Lodge Library is the greatest asset 
of the Grand Lodge.

The Grand Lodge met in Annapolis Royal. Though the 
smallest incorporated town in the Province it is rich in his- 
tory. Here, almost two hundred and fifty years ago, the 
first recorded Protestant service was held in Nova Scotia. 
Here, too, began the history of Freemasonry in Canada. 
"For Freemasons, the name of the town must be forever 
linked with that of Erasmus James Phillips, who, in 1738, 
established the first Masonic Lodge in what is now the Dom- 
inion of Canada." 

Welsford Lodge No. 26, Windsor, celebrated its one 
hundredth anniversary with an ambitious programme. It 
began with a church service and band concert, continued the 
next night with a Masonic play, on the third night with a 
special meeting and on the fourth night with a banquet 
attended by two hundred. 

Two new Lodges were instituted: Horton Lodge LTD.. 
Kentville and Argus Lodge U.D. at Greenwood. Two Lodges 
have completed new buildings and several have improved 
their meeting places. The Grand Master's remarks on this 
subject mei'it wide dissemination: "This is encouraging and 
indicates to those who are not members of the Craft that 
this is a thriving institution doing something more than 
meeting in dark attics and dusty rooms to exemplify its 
ritual and ponder on the ills of mankind. It indicates also 



50 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

that Masons take a pride in their lodge and that the lodge 
is here to stay." 

The Grand Historian, R. W. Bro. R. S. Longley, in his 
report, urged all Lodges which had not done so to appoint 
a Lodge Historian. He recommended the creation of a 
Grand Lodge Centennial Fund to which annual contributions 
could be made to defray the cost of an adequate celebration. 
The anniversary is not far off. Finally, he paid tribute to 
the work in Masonic research being done by M. W. Bro. R. V. 
Harris, R. W. Bro. John Doull and R. W. Bro. E. T. Bliss.

The Grand Master recommended the appointment of a 
committee to gather blueprints or plans for Masonic Lodge 
buildings from those Grand Lodges which have established 
collections of such material. 

The Deputy Grand Master reviews the Inspection Re- 
ports. His conclusion was that "These reports revealed, in 
the most part, that there continues great interest in all areas, 
and that the enthusiasm and fellowship displayed by the 
officers and Brethren is on a high plateau." In his opinion 
the "Lodge Education Program. . . is the most important in 
our Grand Lodge today." 

The Special Committee on Lodge Size Limitation felt 
that in view of the declining membership it would be unwise 
at the present time to place any limitations on lodges as to 
size or number of petitions to be received. 

The Committee on Masonic Jurisprudence recommended 
that the Code, which laid down the rule that a District Deputy 
should visit each Lodge assigned to him. be amended to in- 
clude the word "inspect". The recommendation was adopted. 

One of the qualifications for candidates in Ohio is the 
abilitv to read and write English. Citizenship is not a 
requisite.

This was the fifty-fourth Annual Communication of the 
Grand Lodge of the State of Oklahoma, but it was the sixty- 
ninth of the Grand Lodge of Oklahoma Territory and th° 
eighty-ninth of the Grand Lodge of Indian Territory. The 
Grand Lodge, therefore, preceded the organization of the 
State by thirty-five years. 

A proposed amendment to the Grand Lodge Bylaw* 
provided that when two or more Lodpr°s are situated within 
the same county they shall have concurrent jurisdiction. 
The reason for the proposal, it was explained, was that: "Mod- 
ern methods 1 and machinery, the general farm economy, the 
need of better and more labor in our cities have made it 
expedient for many people to leave the farm and move to 
town. This has reduced the potential in our small town and 
rural areas so that our small Lodq;e<5 are finding it difficult 
to continue. This condition could, in part, be corrected by 
providing for concurrent jurisdiction. Many people from 
the smaller communities and rural section? still attend 
churches there and. because of that association, should be per- 
mitted to join the Lodge in that same community." 

The Masonic Education Committee reported that, after 
many years of work, it now appears that all available mater- 
ial, bearing on the history of Freemasonry in Oklahoma and 
the territories which preceded the State, has now been col- 
lected. The Committee recommended that the time has 
come for someone to write the history.

In accordance with past custom, the Grand Mas4 
ported. Multnomah Lodge No. 1 served a-s host to a delega- 
tion from Kilwinning Lodce, Vancouver. He told of laying 
the cornerstone of the new and beautiful Episcopal Church

in Cornwallis. He also paid tribute to the thorough and pain- 
staking work of the Blood Bank Committee. 

Lodge buildings are vacated from time to time for var- 
ious reasons. An uncommon cause forced Arlington Lodge 
No. 88 to request a dispensation to meet in new quarters. 
The change was necessitated because the lodge property was 
being flooded by the construction of the John Day Dam. 

A Committee, set up at 111th Annual Communication, to 
study the feasibility of moving the Grand Secretary's office 
to the grounds of the Home, located in Forest Grove, recom- 
mended against the move. 

All but about twenty-four Lodges have a Public School 
Committee. The Committee's aim is to encourage the nomina- 
tion of good candidates for public office regardless of party 
or Masonic affiliation. 

The Grand Historian reported that the first volume of 
the history of the Grand Lodge, covering the years 1846 to 
1901, had been printed and would be distributed at the An- 
nual Communication. Earlier Proceedings told of the vast 
amount of effort which had been devoted to the project.

All the Lodges, except two. in the Jurisdiction "are doing 
wonderful work." The Grand Master warned that in the 
case of the two, if there is not an improvement, he will ar- 
rest the charter of one and withdraw the dispensation of the 
other. 

The Lodges responded when called on to assist those who 
had suffered from the destruction caused by the unprece- 
dented inundation of the Province of Agusau which lasted for 
more than a month and the conflagration which razed Basil- 
ian City leaving over 3,000 families homeless. Catastro- 
phes such as these shlow how much suffering there can be in 
the world and how little can be known of it outside the im- 
mediate area. _ But Freemasonry which assisted in this crisis 
in the Philippines is the same as that known to us, revealing 
that here, at least, we have communication.

Unsettled economic conditions have interfered with the 
project of a new Grand Lodge Headquarters. 

At the last Grand Lodge Communication the granting 
of four Charters was approved. This year five dispensations 
were issued.

Since this Grand Lodge meets at a time which results 
in the Proceedings arriving just too late to be reviewed in 
the following year, each Review is comparatively out of date. 

Hiram and Lebanon Lodge No. 3. Summerside, celebrated 
one hundred years of activity. The occasion was fittingly 
celebrated. The roll of Lodges shows that St. John's Lodge 
No. 1, Charlottetown, was established in October, 1797; Vic- 
toria Lodge No. 2, Oharlottetown, was chartered August, 
1858; and St. George's Lodge No. 4. Georgetown, chartered 
September, 1861, will have celebrated its centenary before 
the next Review is printed. Two more will have centenaries 
in 1963.

The Grand Lodee lost its highest officer during the vear. 
M. W. Bro. Cole died on January 9, 1962. The Deputy 
Grand Master, and now Grand Master, carried out the duties 
of the office and visited all Lodges except two. All were 
conducted as thev should be. During visitations, meetings 
were kept on Masonic work. There were no "special" 
sneakers but present and past Grand Officers spoke from 
their Masonic background and knowledge of the Craft. The 
subjects were varied, interesting and important. 

Four Lodges did not forward their returns to the Grand 
Treasurer in time, thus enriching his coffers by $150.

The Proceeding-s open with reports of six special Com- 
munications: to constitute Temple Lodge, U.D., Beloeil; to 
institute a new Lodge to be known as Harmony Lodge, to 
meet in the town of Ohateauguay; to institute a new Lodge 
to be known as Harmony Lodge, to meet in the town of Rox- 
boro; to institute a new Lodge to be known as Fort Chambly, 
to meet in the town of Fort Chambly; to dedicate the Lodge 
Rooms of Doric Lodge No. 34 Q.R; and to dedicate the Lodge 
Room of Valleyfield Lodge No. 75 Q.R. 

With reference to these events, the Grand Master stated. 
"During the past several years, population, residential trends 
in and around Montreal have developed a unique pattern. 
What heretofore were small suburban areas have, due to 
large housing developments, associated with shopping cen- 
tres, become sizeable communities, including schools, churches 
and public buildings, leading to incorporation as municipal- 
ities. In three such communities Masonic Lodges have been 
instituted. 

"On October 17th, Salaberry Lodge was instituted at 
Ohateauguay, sponsored by Valleyfield Lodge No. 75. _ Some 
three hundred brethren were present to participate in the 
launching of this new group which has since shown every 
sign of sound development. . . . 

"On December 1st, in the Municipality of Roxboro, 
Harmony Lodge, sponsored by The Lodge of Two Mountains 
No. 122, of St. Eustache, was instituted, again in the pres- 
ence of a large and enthusiastic gathering of visiting 
brethren. . . . 

"The third Institution took place in St. Stephen's School 
in Fort Chambly on January 29th of this year. The Lodge 
is named Fort Chambly Lodge and was sponsored bv Dor- 
chester Lodge No. 4 of St. Johns. Despite the inclement 
weather a capacity gathering of over two hundred brethren 
was present to participate in the successful launching of yet 
another Lodge; many there present are showing a continuing 
interest in its growth and welfare. 

"Of unusual interest is the fact that this year two Lodge 
rooms have been dedicated. The first of these occurred on 
April 28th, when the room owned by Doric Lodge No. 34, at 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 55 

Danville, was dedicated, while at the same time the mortgage, 
placed on the building some 32 years earlier, was burned 
with appropriate ceremony. . . . 

"The second dedication occurred a week later at Valley- 
field." Valleyfield Lodge, No. 75, in its relatively short 
career, has provided three Grand Masters for the 
Jurisdiction. Clearly, Masonry is on the march in Quebec. 

Of interest was the visit to the Grand Jurisdiction of 
M. W. Bro. Emest Van Hecke, Grand Master of the Grand 
Lodge Nationale of France, accompanied by his Grand Sec- 
retary, R. W. Bro. Jean Muet. They paid a visit to Coeurs- 
Unis Lodge No. 45. They must have felt quite at home 
as Coeurs-Unis does its work in French. 

The Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Israel. M. W. 
Bro. Max Silverstone, visited St. George's Lodge No. 10. 

The Grand Master most fittingly commented: "Thus are 
the ties of fraternal friendship and natural good will strength- 
ened, not only as between individual Masons, but also in 
the realm of sovereign jurisdictions." 

The Grand Master paid ti-ibute to the organizations for 
Welfare and Educational promotion, the Board of Relief, 
and the Masonic Blood Bank. He also told something of 
the overall condition of Masonry in his Grand Jurisdiction: 

"Let us now pause to survey the overall condition erf 
Masonry as it relates to our jurisdiction as a whole. Ob- 
viously, in a Province of such vast geographical extent, there 
exist great variations of economic, social, ethnic, and even 
climatic conditions. All of these, due to the incidence of 
national and international pressures and developments, are 
subject to constant change. ?ome more rapidly others more 
slowly, yet all definitely felt. These various currents of 
change naturally, affect Masonry, as they do every aspect 
of life in this Province. In some areas Masonry is fighting 
a losing battle for existence. Fifty to one hundred years 
ago Lodges were established in communities that were then 
seventy-five percent or more Anglo-Saxon; today, these 
same communities are seventy-five percent or more French 
Canadian, and practically all members of the Roman Catho- 
lic faith. On the other hand, industrial expansion in the 
Province has brought about phenominal population growth 
in towns and cities and the related suburban areas. S* 
tically, we have shown small numerical growth in our jur- 
isdiction for several years. But the important, indeed vital 
requirement must ever be, not numbers but quality or 
character. Given the latter, the former will automatically 
correct itself. And it is because of this that I offer you 
words of encouragement. For I am convinced, from manv 



56 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

indications, observations and personal experiences, that there 
is a ferment of vitality at work in so many areas of our 
jurisdiction. More brethren are injecting their Masonic 
ideals into public and community activities; Masons are 
taking a larger share in the work of their Churches, Sen-ice 
Clubs, Youth and Welfare Organizations and the many other 
projects that are all designed for the benefit of humanity. 
It represents the practical application of the injunction from 
the Sacred Volume 'Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers 
only.' To the good Mason, part of his philosophy of life is- 
'not what I can get, but what I can give'. And so I look 
with confidence to the continued growth of our Order in this 
jurisdiction. Difficulties and problems will always be with 
us, but faith, courage and determination, and application of 
strong ideals of service will overcome them all, and lead to 
a yet more worthy future for Freemasonry in Quebec." 

Any who may be concerned with the relationship be- 
tween Freemasonry and Religion should read the address 
by the Grand Chaplain. Bro. Rev. C. W. Foggo. One para- 
graph must suffice here: 

"Whilst my ignorance of Freemasonry is abysmal, I do 
not come before you with any apologies. As a minister of 
the gospel I believe I am called of God to speak of his rev- 
elation of himself. I lay no claim to scholarly attainments 
in the realm of theology, but I do consider myself moderately 
equipped for my task. If I stand among you as a brother 
Mason, it is only because I believe that the tenets of my 
faith can be upheld and strengthened through the practice 
of the Craft; or putting it another way, the true practice of 
Freemasonry should be an expression of my religious 
convictions."

At his installation the Grand Master showed that Free- 
masonry is in a good' state in Queensland. 

"This Grand Lodge has been fortunate in always having 
had competent and popular Grand Masters, and it will not 
be easy to fill their shoes; it will not be easy to maintain the 
high standard which was originally set and which has never 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 57 

been departed from. I attain to this high office at a time 
when Freemasonry is flourishing. During the last few years 
many new Lodges have been consecrated and several Temples 
dedicated, and I sincerely hope that the momentum of pro- 
gress will be maintained and will not diminish under my 
Grand Mastership." 

He also put forward bis views of the place of Free- 
masonry' in history and in the world today: 

"Down through the centuries many institutions and or- 
ganisations have been founded but when their purpose has 
been fulfilled, or their popularity has faded, they have be- 
come lifeless and extinct. On the other hand, during the 
last three centuries, Freemasonry has gradually increased 
and intensified, and has become more dignified and reverent. 
Freemasonry has an irresistible attraction for the best men 
from all walks of life, from the highest and most intellectual 
to those of the humblest station. Where, other than in the 
relaxed and peaceful atmosphere of a Masonic Lodge, is there 
a haven where men of the most diametrically opposed inter- 
ests — whether it be in matters of religion, politics, or other 
controversial subject — can meet together on the level as 
brother* and in complete harmony? In a troubled world 
torn by strife and divided by conflicting interests of race, 
nationality, politics and religion, Freemasonry affords a real 
oasis of sanity where right-thinking men of every station 
of life can forgather as children of the one common Father, 
in love, peace and harmony, and from where the good influ- 
ence of Freemasonry can emanate to benefit the community 
generally. 

"We as Freemasons have a serious obligation to see that 
the high ideals and standards of Freemasonry are maintained 
and that the good work of Freemasonry continues to 
prosper. By endeavouring to live up to the teachings of 
Freemasonry we must in consequence become better men. 
It must have the effect of raising our moral standards and 
making us a little more particular in our dealings with our 
fellow-men. The example set by us in this respect is sure to 
be followed by others, and thereby the good of Freemasonry 
will spread to non-Masons and operate tor the benefit of the 
community as a whole. We who have been privileged to 
see the light are obligated to see that our Freemasonry is 
not merely a lodgeroom Freemasonry but that its beneficial 
influence should extend to the outside world." 

Remarks like these not only are inspiring but refreshing. 
It looks as though Freemasonry in Queensland is destined 
to flourish. 

The question of proper dress at Grand Lodge Commu- 
nications was discussed. The Board of General Purposes 



58 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

proposed that summer dress be permitted at lodge meetings 
for five months in twelve but not at Grand Lodge Commu- 
nications. The strong stand by a Past Grand Master, who 
advocated^ that the wearing of the white mess jacket be per- 
mitted, resulted in the proposal being referred back to the 
Board. 

The Deputy Grand Master reported on his visitation to 
New Guinea. Here Freemasonry has a real part to play 
under extreme difficulty. 

"Looking back on the tour, and this comment no doubt 
applies to all previous visits to the area, one is struck by the 
necessity for the establishment and the maintenance of the 
Order in those parts, as a common meeting ground for men 
whose avocations' place them in what may be regarded ^ as the 
fringe of civilisation, as the average town dweller in this 
State may regard it. 

"It brings together men from great and lonely distances 
frequently, and as these people are the life and backbone of 
the economic and administrative fabric of the territory, the 
advantages gained are incalculable. 

"The pioneering spirit is everywhere evidenced, particu- 
larly in the building of commodious temples, the cost of 
which is unhesitatingly borne by a comparatively few mem- 
bers. Unless the question is specifically asked one would 
never know what debts are still owing on the temples. 

"We learned, for instance, that in Goroka with an edifice 
costing over £3,000, the lodge has only three (3) permanent 
resident members; the rest being subject to transfer. The 
question of itinerant membership is common to all Lodges 
in the Territory. The rigidity of the constitutional pro- 
vision that a prloposed candidate be known to his spon- 
sors for a period of at least twelve months was again a mat- 
ter of discussion. Instances arise where applicants are 
transferred to another part of the territory before the neces- 
sary formalities can be compiled with and the lodges are 
deprived of a source of membership essential to their func- 
tioning. 

"It is contended that when a man joins the Craft he 
enters Freemasonry and his admittance should not and does 
not_ depend upon a twelve months superficial knowledge of 
an itinerant person by a local member. They see no reason 
why the time factor should debar a man of good credentials 
from joining. 

"The contention may be worthy of consideration by this 
Grand Lodge, in the interests of those brethren who are 
carrying the banner of Freemasonry under great difficulties. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 59 

"In Kavieng, the Master lives 150 miles and the Im- 
mediate Past Master 100 miles from the lodges; other officers 
at varying - distances between these outposts. 

"One lacks sufficient superlatives to adequately express 
praise for the intense loyalty to Grand Lodge; the enthus- 
iasm and ready acceptance of responsibility in the adminis- 
tration of the Craft affairs and the sacrifice of time and 
money in the interest of Freemasonry, evidenced in that dis- 
tant part of our jurisdiction and all now look forward 
to a visit from our Grand Master before he vacates his 
office."

The Mother Lodge of the Grand Master, 1961-62, is What 
Cheer No. 21. This is one of the most distinctive names en- 
countered in the various Proceedings reviewed here. The 
Lodge was constituted in 1858. 

During the year the Grand Master instituted a new 
programme of opening an Occasional Communication in each 
Masonic District, seven in number. This in effect brought 
the Grand Lodge to all subordinate Lodges and afforded 
substantial numbers of brethren the opportunity to witness 
the Grand Lodge in session and to profit from hearing a 
distinguished Masonic speaker. 

A dispensation was granted to one Lodge to visit in 
Quebec.

Attendance at the Annual Communication showed a great 
improvement over that of the previous year. The Commit- 



60 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

tee on the Condition of Masonry investigated the reasons for 
absence of representatives at the previous Communication 
and came up with some original answers: "grasshopper in- 
festation, absence of the W.M. from the province, illness of a 
delegate, sickness in the delegate's family, or on account of 
vacation. One lodge said its principal officers were teachers 
and could not be absent from school in June. Another said it 
simply forgot about Grand Lodge." 

The Grand Master reported that Lodges were not in- 
creasing in the cities to keep pace with the increased pop- 
ulation. Lodge buildings simply are not large enough to 
cope with any increase in the number of Lodges. Masonry, 
however, is still at a high level in the majority of the rural 
Lodges. 

The Grand Master attended and spoke at two 75th an- 
niversaries, one 60th and six 50th anniversaries. 

No Lodge reported being in financial difficulties. As- 
sets totalled approximately $2,300,000 while liabilities, a 
good share of which were prepaid dues, were approximately 
$160,000. Every Lodge reported a surplus of assets over 
liabilities. Surpluses varied from more than $10,000 in 
forty cases to less than $1,000 in thirteen cases. While 
Freemasonry does exist for the purpose of creating surplus- 
es, the healthy financial condition of all Lodges suggests that 
Freemasonry in Saskatchewan is full of life.

The Grand Master Mason, 1957-61, was The Right Hon- 
ourable The Earl of Eglinton and Winton. These Proceed- 
ings give an account of the first year of the present Grand 
Master Mason, Lord Bruce. He was able to visit two Lodges 
which celebrated their bi-centenaries. He was particularly 
pleased to see on their Charters the signature "Elgin and 
Kincardine" being that of his great-<great-great grandfather 
who was then Grand Master Mason. These names, of 
course, are recorded and well known in Ontario thanks to a 
less distant ancestor whose signature of the Rebellion Losses 
Bill conceded responsible government to the province in 1849. 

Once again the Proceedings tell a great deal about the 
position of Freemasonry in the world as well as Scotland. 
This year the Grand Master Mason reported on his visit, 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE Gl 

with the Grand Secretary, to Belgium, Germany, Lebanon, 
Jordan and Israel, between March 26 and April 18, 1962. 

In writing of Germany he not only gave a brief but 
comprehensive history of the United Grand Lodges of Ger- 
many but something of their ways. 

"I should like to tell you in more detail of a very won- 
derful visit to the Lodge Zur Einigkeit and in general of the 
position of the United Grand Lodges of Germany. After 
1936 no true meetings of Freemasons were held; it was not 
until 1947 in the St. Paul's Church. Frankfurt, that a meet- 
ing /of over 1,000 Freemasons was convened. Through dev- 
ious stages, of which I need not weary you, the final outcome 
of this meeting was the constitution of the United Grand 
Lodges of Germany; thei'e are now some 340 Lodges with 
20,000 members. Great care is taken in the selection of new 
members. After initiation it is the custom to take one 
Degree each year and to attend the Meetings of as many 
Lodges in the area working in that or a lower Degree dur- 
ing the year. Further, it is expected that a lecture on a 
Masonic subject will be made to a Lodge of discussion during 
each year. Fees are paid for each Degree when it is taken 
and in general an annual Test Fee to the Lodge is about C2. 
Lodges also pay a per capita fee to Grand Lodge. The 
Lodge Meeting was held in the reconstructed building of the 
Grand Lodge off the Kaiserstrasse. The Lodge itself was 
formed in 1742. All the Brethren were in full evening 
dress. Brother Muller-Borner took over from the Master 
and when I was introduced by Past Grand Master Brother 
Dr Vogel, I was received by the Grand Master as in Grand 
Lodge. This was the first occasion that the Grand Master 
of Scotland had indeed ever visited officially in Germany. 
After the formalities were over the Grand Master handed 
over to the Master w r ho in turn instructed Stuhl Meister to 
continue (a practice not known in the Grand Master Depute's 
own Lodge). Thereafter three candidates were admitted as 
initiates but only after they had written in a darkened room 
of preparation why they so desired admission. 

"The Degree, of course, varies considerably from ours. 
A rather lovely feature is when the Brethren form 'die Kette', 
or 'the chain of brotherhood'. Into this chain the candidate 
is later admitted. After the candidate has taken his obliga- 
tion, the points of the compasses are placed against his 
breasts and the Master knocks gently on the compasses with 
the knocks of the Degree. After the Lodge has been closed 
and the Brethren go to the dining room for refreshment, 
a Tafel Lodge is opened. This is something similar to our 
g-oing from labour to refreshment. We spent a most won- 
derful evening- with our German Brethren and it was 3 a.m. 
when we returned to our hotel." 



62 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

At the Annual Communication, November 30, 1962, the 
Grand Master Mason reported: "Brethren, at this time it 
is customary for me to give you some statistics of the hap- 
penings in our Grand Lodge over the past twelve months. 
The number of Initiates last year was 11,889, this being a 
decrease of 338 compared with the previous year. This 
year we have consecrated seven new Lodges, four in Scotland 
and three overseas; this is the first time for many years 
that the number of new Charters within Scotland has _ ex- 
ceeded the number overseas but at the same time four is a 
very small number for Scotland. Our contribution this 
year to our Benevolent Funds, not including the Masonic 
Homes Fund, was £24,900 which is more or less the same 
figure as last year. This time last year Brethren I thought 
that I had made it abundantly clear that the gap between 
the voluntary giving of Lodges in Scotland and what in fact 
Grand Almoner distributes was too great and ought to be 
closed and I make no bones about it now in showing that it 
is even more important that if we are to be proper Free- 
masons we should live today in today's world and we must 
see to it that those who depend on us receive value today 
from us. We must not be in any measure dependent on the 
foresight and perspicacity of Brethren before us. Our 
Craft will only exist purely and uprightly if we do today 
what we ought, not because we must, but because we love to 
do it."

Lodges, 205 Membership, 27,877 Gain, 102 

It is gratifying to read that the Grand Master had the 
honour of Knighthood conferred on him in the New Year 
Honours. 

The recession in growth (the increase in the preceding 
year was 425) was lattributed to the difficult economic con- 
ditions experienced in the State and Australia generally dur- 
ing the year. 

The Grand Registrar reported that only twenty Lodges 
in the Jurisdiction had not increased their initiation _ fees. 
The minimum fee was raised from twelve to eighteen guineas. 
The President of the Board of General Purposes emphasized 
that the increase was necessary to repair and renovate Free- 
masons' Hall and to provide for the ultimate replacement of 
the building. 









FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 63 

The Grand Master drew attention to the number of cases 
where some Lodges had been unaware of the plight either of 
members who had suffered illness or calamity or of widow? 
and children whose reduced financial circumstances had ren- 
dered them deserving of Masonic 'assistance, monetary or 
otherwise. He went on: 

"The lack of knowledge of such cases is often due to the 
pride of the individuals concerned, having forbidden the ready 
disclosure of their troubles to others but such cases would be 
reduced to a minimum if every Lodge were to have a Welfare 
Committee, say a sub-committee of the Executive Committee, 
charged with the responsibility of arranging periodical visita- 
tion of members whose attendance at Lodge meetings has 
been irregular or has ceased and of widows and orphans 
■whose financial circumstances are known to be precarious. 
If. by reason of long distance, it were not practicable for 
the committee of a Lodge to make any such visitation, this 
could well be arranged through the committee of the Lodge 
nearest to the place of abode of the person to be visited. 
The friendly enquiries of such a sub-committee might also 
help to rekindle interests 1 of brethren whose absent- 
due to causes other than sickness or lack of finance. 

"It is contrary to our concept cf true Brother- 
hood that a worthy member of a Lodge who has suffered 
illness or calamity, sh/ould have to resign his membership of 
his Lodge because of inability to pay the full subscription 
without detriment to himself or his wife and children^ It 
is equally distressing to think that there are brethren, widows 
and children who are not receiving deserved assistance from 
our funds solely because their circumstances are unknown to 
the Lodge concerned." 

The Grand Master was not able to be present at the 
Annual Communication as he was holidaying in Southern 
Rhodesia He attended a number of meetings there and was 
greatly impressed by the dignity and sincerity of the degree 
work of the Lodges he visited. He was particularly inter- 
ested in comparing the ritual used by Lodges working under 
the English, Irish and Scottish Constitutions with that used 
in South Australia. 

In the absence of the Grand Master, the Deputy Grand 
Master presided. His address like that of the Grand Master 
at the half-yearly communication was couched m finely 
rounded English. ' His last two paragraphs are well worth 
giving here. 

"Inside our own four walls, as it were, the spirit and the 
energy of many people is most encouraging. Those who 
sit on the committees of Grand Lodge work hard and gener- 
ously Within the Grand Lodge ranks, the officers, who 



64 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

tonight lay down their more active pursuits as well as those 
who continue, have done a herculean task. In the various 
Lodges, men of merit have made their presence felt. 

"So this Grand Lodge, the oldest among Grand Lodges 
in Australia, faces another year and we, its members, must 
pledge ourselves beneath the motto of our banner-Pro Deo 
et Fratibus. Men who know not God, men who have no sense 
of brotherhood within their minds and hearts are truly lim- 
ited. While we live, not only as citizens but as Free- 
masons, these two great powers enrich us and weave us 
closely together. Just as the warp and the weft of cloth knit 
together a piece of material and give it pattern and strength, 
so it is my prayer that by reliance on God and on a continual 
remembrance of our brothers 1 we may face the future with 
humble confidence and with a knowledge that our efforts, our 
energies, indeed the very strength of our lives is given in ob- 
jective service to the pattern and the strength of Free- 
masonry." 



SOUTH CAROLINA— 1962

Grand Master 1962-64— M. W. Bro. H. D. McAlister 

Lodges, 303 Membership 58,630 Gain, 552 

The newly elected Grand Master is an ordained minister 
and for thirteen years has been Pastor of the First Baptist 
Church of Oheraw, South Carolina. Special Communica- 
tions were called to lay the cornerstones of the Spartanbury 
County Court House, the Spartanbury City Hall, the Spartan- 
bury County Library, the Pickens County Court House and 
also for several Masonic functions. These facts clearly sug- 
gest that Freemasonry receives wide acceptance in South 
Carolina. 

Seven new Temples were dedicated, two lodges were con- 
stituted and two cornerstones for new Temples were laid. 
The most exciting event, however, was the laying of the 
cornerstone of the Grand Lodge Building in the City of 
Columbia. The trowel used on this occasion was first used 
by Bro. the Marquis de Lafayette in 1825. The V.S.L. has 
been in the possession of the Lodges of South Carolina 
since 1794. Three times before the Grand Lodge has erected 
new buildings, the last in 1872, in Charleston. 

The address on the latest occasion was given by M. W. 
Bro. T. H. Pope, the Grand Master, who appointed the first 
committee to survey the subject of building. His remarks, 
fittingly, told something of the past. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 65 

"It would seem appropriate today to mention something 
of the origin and history of Freemasonry in South Carolina. 
All of us know that Solomon's Lodge No. 1, in Charleston, 
received its warrant in 1735. Many of us do not realize 
that John Hammerton, Esquire, was appointed Provincial 
Grand Master of South Carolina, in 1736, by the Earl of 
Loudoun, Grand Master of England. The Provincial Grand 
Lodge was constituted on the Festival of St. John the Evan- 
gelist in the year 1737. . . . 

"We can take pride in the fact that South Carolina is 
the third oldest Grand Lodge in North America. Only Mas- 
sachusetts and Pennsylvania are older and this is by a very 
narrow margin." 

The new Grand Lodge Building will be in a fine setting. 
The speaker stated: 

"The City of Columbia hopes to make this section the 
cultural center of this beautiful capital city. The site we 
have selected lies almost in the exact geographical center 
of South Carolina, just one block from our magnificent Capi- 
tol building. It is located on a street which it is hoped 
will some day become a mall on which vehicular traffic will 
be prohibited. In the adjoining block is located historic 
Trinity Church. Across the street lies the State Archives 
Building. A block to the east is the Columbia Museum 
while a block to the south is the University of South Caro- 
lina. Down Senate Street may be seen the historic Horry- 
Guignard House and the School of Fine Arts of the Univer- 
sity of South Carolina. Soon the State will erect an office 
building in this very block." 

One of the most illustrious Masons, Albert Gallatin Mac- 
key, came from South Carolina. His portrait will hang in the 
new building, which will provide office space for the Grand 
Lodge and will also contain a library and museum.

The Grand Lodge met in Yankton to commemorate the 
one hundredth anniversary of St. Johns Lodge No. 1, the 
first Lodge in South Dakota to become one hundred years 
old. 

The Committee on Grand Lodge Building reported that 
there was much to be done to finish and improve the room

vised as a library and museum. The Committee also recom- 
mended that a request to make the Masonic Library avail- 
able as a fallout shelter be taken under advisement. This 
action evidently meant filing. 

The problem of disposal of excess material in the Li- 
brary is a troublesome one. There is a substantial sentiment 
that the whole question of whether there should even be a 
general library maintained by Grand Lodge needs to be 
given serious study. 

The Board of General Activities, as it is named, reported, 
among other matters, that the lfbrary of recordings is grow- 
ing and that continued efforts are made to record the ora- 
tions of the Grand Orator and other outstanding Masonic 
addresses. Lodges may borrow these for the cost of post- 
age. 



TASMANIA— 1962

Half-yearly Communication — August 25 

Grand Master— M W. Bro. Rt. Rev. W. R. Barrett 

Lodges, 73 Membership, 8,897 Gain, 10 

M. W. Bro. H. V. Jones completed three years as Grand 
Master and was succeeded by M. W. Bro. Rt. Rev. W. R. 
Barrett, a Bishop. 

In his last address the retiring Grand Master spoke of 
the importance of selecting members for office who are fit 
for the post. Length of service and seniority should give 
way to merit. "Unless merit is to be the true criterion for 
office, there will be a tendency for the standard of leader- 
ship in our Lodges to deteriorate, a levelling down, not a 
levelling up. 

"The tide of our Lodge activities is still running strongly 
towards the social rather than the spiritual side. It be- 
hooves every ruler in the Craft to consider whether too much 
time of his year of office is not being devoted to Masonic 
social functions rather than to employing and instructing 
his Brethren in Freemasonry." He added that in all Lodges 
are brethren who would make worthy Masters but who can- 
not become candidates for office because their avocations do 
not give them the time to attend the many social functions 
and to visit other Lodges. 

The Grand Master summed up his view of Freemasonry 
in no uncertain terms: "We live in an age of crowds, with 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 67 

mass movements and mass thinking, in which the individual 
tends to he lost or at least to be insignificant. There are 
times when it might appear that out great objective, the 
Brotherhood of Man, is but an airy idealism, but I end my 
term of office with increased faith in the beauty of Free- 
masonry and its power to bring happiness and peace of 
mind to all mankind. 

When the bars of speech and creed and race which sever, 
Shall be fused in one humanity forever. 

"To me the purpose of Freemasonry is not concerned 
with improving standards of living or mulitplying the ac- 
complishments of human ingenuity, but, through its mem- 
bers, to teach mankind universal charity, conceived in the 
belief that all men are Brothers, sons of a common Father. 

"I believe that the teachings of Freemasonry are need- 
ed today as perhaps never before, and I plead for an enlarged 
vision of Freemasonry, and what it should mean to each of 
us to be a Mason." 

A Canadian reader of this address is impressed by the 
similarity of the aims, achievements and difficulties of Free- 
masonry on the other side of the world. At the same time 
he is left with a regret that he could not have heard what 
must have been a heart- warming statement of purpose and 
confidence. 

The installation of the Grand Master-elect concluded 
the 71st Annual Communication,

The Grand Master reported that he had been able to 
attend the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontar- 
io. Six days later, on July 24, he drove to Knoxville where he 
dedicated the new lodge hall of Masters Lodge, No. 244. He 
concluded: "I think without a doubt that this is one of the 
most beautiful lodge rooms in our State. The dedication was 
open to the public and some 300 persons were present" 

On August 25 the Grand Master had a rare privilege. 
He presented a seventy-five-year lapel button to Bro. J. F.

Daniels. He was raised on June 5, 1886. Actually, he was 
the third Tennessee Mason to receive such a pin in recent 
years. 

During- the year there were twenty-seven district meet- 
ing's at which the Grand Master was present. A good per- 
centage of the members in the Grand Jurisdiction attended. 

Considerable progress has been made during the past ten 
years in an effort to get Lodges to raise their dues to an 
amount that will take care of their operating expenses, some 
charity work, and leave something for social affairs and re- 
freshments. Two Lodges- have annual dues set at $3.00, one 
at $25.00. 

In all, the Grand Jurisdiction had a most successful year. 
For the twenty-first year a net gain in membership was 
recorded, which now has exceeded the 90,000 mark. 

Among the Lodge names are many which indicate the 
geographical location of the Lodge and others which record 
distinguished Masons of an earlier day. Such evidently was 
the origin of Ed Worsham Lodge No. 505. How Difficult 
Lodge No. 451, came to get its name might make an interest- 
ing story. 

The Chairman of the Foreign Correspondence Commit- 
tee is W. P. Douglas, P.G.M. 1951. Once again he has present- 
ed an extensive collection of excellent Reviews. He warned 
against Lodges becoming "degree mills". He continued: "This 
is the main challenge that faces Freemasonry today. That 
challenge must be met if our Institution is to maintain its 
position of influence in the world. The people, and this in- 
cludes many of our own members, must be made to realize 
that Freemasonry is not just a tight little group that confers 
meaningless degrees upon its initiates. In those countries 
where men of great influence are active in the affairs of 
our Order, the numbers taken in are of little concern. A 
Fraternity should offer us friendship and its place of meet- 
ing should be a quiet place where we meet our friends and 
brothers for relaxing and satisfying experiences. This is what 
our Fraternity and the world needs."

two years. Amends will now be made. A year full of activity 
was reported. 

After a brief biography of the Grand Master, the Pro- 
ceedings launch out with over two pages of "Special Repres- 
entations," for the purpose of "levelling cornerstones," evi- 
dently the Texan expression for "laying" used in some other 
jurisdictions. Twenty-five occasions are recorded. Ten involved 
new Masonic Temples, while the remainder involved non- 
Masonic buildings, in most cases educational. One might well 
wonder if this total does not constitute a record for Ma- 
sonic events of this type. 

"Special Representations" were held for the purpose of 
constituting three new lodges, no fewer than ten, for the 
purpose of dedicating lodge buildings, and one to unveil a 
marker. 

The roll of Past Grand Masters of Texas has twenty- 
four names and of these twenty-one were present at the 
opening session. The flag of Texas was presented and then 
the American flag. After the colours were posted, the ladies 
and those not Master Masons were asked to retire. 

The Grand Secretary reported a net increase in mem- 
bership for the twenty-fourth consecutive year. The Grand 
Librarian stated that nearly 2,000 people had visited the 
Grand Lodge Library and Museum. 

The Grand Lodge maintains a Masonic Home and School. 
During the year the enrollment was 176 children and there 
were 72 widows in the Home. Between 1908 and 1961 mem- 
orials and bequests have totalled $1,052,388. 

By any measure, the Grand Lodge of Texas is active 
and flourishing.

The slate of Officers shows that there are 130 District

Past Grand Masters. Since the membership is as large as 
it is and twenty-three "Special Representations" were held for

the purpose of "Levelling Cornerstones" a large slate of 
Grand officers, evidently, is necessary. Of these corner- 
stone layings nine were non-Masonic buildings, being church- 
es and schools. 

Students from the Masonic Home and School entertained 
with a musical programme. There are 168 students in the 
school at the moment and an additional twenty-three pre- 
school children in kindergarten A new high school with 
an auditorium to seat 500 is under construction. 

Texas Grand Lodge was host to the Southwestern Ma- 
sonic Conference. The meetings were most successful and 
several papers were presented. 

A member of Texas Lodge of Research submitted a 
thesis on "The Contributions of Freemasonry in Texas to 
Public School Education, 1846-1860," to Baylor University 
for the M. Sc. degree. 

The Committee on Masonic Education and Research has 
continued to gather information on Past Grand Masters. If 
the nearest living relatives wish, an appropriate bronze plate 
will be placed at the grave of all Past Grand Masters. The 
Committee has also compiled a list of Masonic Historic Sites 
and are adding to the list. When the list is complete the 
Committee plan to erect historic markers, if Grand Lodge 
approves. 

The Proceedings of our Grand Lodge are most favour- 
ably reviewed. By any standard the Grand Lodge of Texas 
stands out as large, strong and active.

The Grand Master reported that the condition of Ma- 
sonry in Utah is vital and looking to the future with vigour 
and good judgment. The Lodges are sound financially. While 
some of the smaller Lodges are having difficulty in building 
up reserve funds, none are in dangerous circumstances. The 
Grand Master feels that some of the larger and older Lodges 
actually have too much idle capital 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 71 

He found the degree work being done with a high de- 
gree of proficiency, reflecting a steady improvement over 
years. Indeed, he was concerned to learn that certain Lodges 
feel that peace and harmony among the Craft and brotherly 
love, one for another, are being sacrificed on the altar of 
ritualistic perfection. He concluded, however, that in hie 
view "our fraternal bonds" must be strengthened "by our 
understanding rather than strained by our demands, as we 
strive toward perfection in our ritual." 

Since the Grand Lodge is comparatively small and will 
be celebrating its centenary in ten years, the Grand Mastei 
recommended that each Lodge be assessed fifteen cents per 
member per year. Such a levy should produce $10,000 in a 
decade. He also recommended the start of a Grand Lodge 
history.

Among the recommendations of the retiring Grand 
Master was one that the office of Grand Organist should be 
established and another that the incoming Grand Master set 
up a committee to study the establishment of additional 
Lodges in cities where the numbers in the several Lodges 
exceed five hundred members each. He added "I feel that 
a small Lodge doing its work faithfully, publicizing its 
meetings as many are doing, is a much greater benefit to 
Freemasonry than Lodges which are so big that the mem- 
bers become almost numbers on the roll rather than individ- 
uals known by the others as Tbrothers'." 

Five secretaries of Lodges have served for thirty-two, 
or more, years consecutively. One has served for thirty- 
seven years.

In recent vears the Reviews of the Proceedings of the 
Grand Lodge, A.F.&A.M. of Virginia have told much of the 



72 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

activity of this great and flourishing Grand Jurisdiction, 
Once again a most successful year was reported. In his ad- 
dress the Grand Master told of the impact of the Civil WaT 
on Freemasonry in Virginia and the effort of the Grand 
Master of Massachusetts to effect a reconciliation in 1861, 
without success. 

In the interest of Masonic Education and for the promo- 
tion of the general good of Freemasonry in Virginia, it was 
decided to institute a series of Area Conferences under the 
sponsorship of the Grand Lodge Committee on Masonic In- 
formation, Research and Publications. Six such Conferences 
were held during the months of April and May. The overall 
attendance at these conferences and the interest and enthus- 
iasm displayed far exceeded expectation®. 

The Grand Master ruled that a Lodge could not pur- 
chase space on a sign Which listed the organizations of a 
community. The expenditure he did not consider to be for 
a Masonic purpose. He added "I heartily approve of the 
marking of our Masonic Lodges in a proper manner but do 
not believe that we should go as far as advertising these 
in the same manner used by the civic clubs." 

The Sixth Annual Meeting of the Northeast Conference 
on Masonic Education and Libraries convened in Richmond 
on June 23rd and 24th. This Conference embraces the States 
of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, 
Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Mas- 
sachusetts, Maine and the District of Columbia. Brethren 
attended from Grand Lodges of most of the States enumer- 
ated, and from Ohio, Quebec and North Carolina.

The severe loss in membership disturbed the Grand 
Master and Grand Secretary. The Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Fraternal Correspondence also stressed this subject 
in his "Thoughts and Conclusions." He summed up well 
the opinions expressed in various Grand Lodges and the 
efforts made to change the trend. He concluded: 

"The individual must be considered and treated as an 
end in himself and not as a means to an end. To seek mere 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 73 

numbers is but to use the individual as a means of building 
the Lodge, whereas our concern should be in letting the in- 
dividual take the initiative and then demonstrate our interest 
in building men, who through the practice of the tenets of 
Freemasonry, will perpetuate the principles of their own 
inherent worth. 

"Our failure to do this may, in many instances, be sum- 
med up as a lack of leadership in the East. There is more, 
much more, to being a Worshipful Master than learning the 
Ritual, or being an acceptable Master of Ceremonies during 
the entertainment of the evening, or at the banquet table or 
during the refreshment hour. 

"The Master should be the leader in all the activities of 
the Lodge, and represent it at all times with a dignity and 
understanding that will enhance its prestige and be an in- 
spiration to his brethren. The welfare of his brethren, the 
fellowship offered and the proper conduct of his Lodge 
should be his constant and abiding care. He should be pro- 
ficient in the Ritual; have a thorough knowledge of the laws, 
customs and usages of the Fraternity, and familiarize him- 
self with the history, principles and objectives of Freema- 
sonry, that he may appreciate its genius and thus, in truth 
and fact, be able to communicate Light and Instruction to 
his brethren. 

"If every Worshipful Master would measure up to what 
is required of him there would be an uplift in the quality 
of Freemasonry. Interest would be maintained, enthusiasm 
would be unquestioned and thus, by our works, we would be 
well and favourably known and our Increases would Increase 
and our Decreases would Decrease." 

The Committee on the Re-districting of Lodges recom- 
mended no Deputy be expected to serve more than ten lodges. 
The rearrangement proposed would allow thirty-five districts 
of which four are new. 

The Grand Historian devoted his remarks to the history 
of the University of Washington which was celebrating its 
centenary. The fourth Grand Master of Washington played 
a leading and important part in its founding.

One of the most interesting items in these Proceedings 
has to do not with West Virginia but Austria. At the 



74 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Annual Communication W. Bro. Thorn was called on to tell 
of his visit to the Grand Lodge of Austria. He reported 
that after some difficulty over language he was able to at- 
tend Libertas Lodge. There was no work but an address 
was given which was interpreted in English for the visitor. 
The Lodges in Austria are kept small in numbers in the 
belief that real fellowship is to be found only in small 
lodges. The speaker added "I was impressed- too, to find 
out that if they do not have degree work to put on, one of 
the members gives an address on some subject concerning 
philosophy or Masonry or some other related material .... 
It was most interesting to see that there is always some- 
thing at one of their meetings — and they go away with 
something whether there has been degree work or not." As 
an Episcopal minister the visitor made a sensation when he 
entered a Lodge in a country which is ninety-five percent 
Roman Catholic. 

The Grand Lodge of West Virginia is looking forward to 
the Centenary in 1964. Although there was a small net 
loss of 84 in membership for the year, the Jurisdiction is in 
a strong financial condition as indeed are the subordinate 
Lodges. In some the dues have been too low. 

Unfortunately, during the year the Grand Lodge lost 
three Past Grand Masters.

Speaking at the Communication of Grand Lodge, April 
26, 1962, the Grand Master, M. W. Bro. J. L. Rossdter, told 
something of his feelings after several years in his office. 
He was elected in 1958. "Brethren, many rewarding ex- 
periences have come to me as a result of my associations of 
the past few years. Sitting around the table at district con- 
ferences was the means of a helpful interchange of views on 
a wide range of subjects which were of special interest to 
the lodges concerned. A large number of evening meetings 
were attended — some for Installation ceremonies and pos- 
sibly more for degree workings. It was rare indeed to 
meet up with anything but a beautifully conducted ceremony, 
and none was poorly done. In this field we can well be 
proud of what is being done. As is natural, lodges tend to 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 76 

develop an individuality of their own, but there still remains, 
in the case of most, the over-all feeling that here is a happy 
band of brothers." 

Twice, however, he had encountered instances where ac- 
cident, misfortune, severe illness and bereavement had been 
suffered, and no member of the particular lodge had made 
any approach to the person in trouble. 

He put forward his idea as to how to solve such problems 
when they arise: 

"For myself, I like the idea of a general over-all com- 
mittee, meeting regularly, to which matters relating to both 
the policy and the personnel of the lodge could be referred. 
Small ad hoc sub-committees might work from this as re- 
quired. My experience leads me to think that as a rule more 
should be done, especially in the hour of a brother's need, 
to promote that personal touch which can mean so much. 
When we are well, and all goes well, we enjoy greeting one 
another as brothers. How much more it means in our darker 
hours! I believe machinery should be set up in every 
lodge (and I know that in some it is given the highest 
priority) to enable all cases of hardship, disability or bereave- 
ment by members to be reported and sympathetically consid- 
ered and action taken appropriate to the circumstances." 

This was the last official pronouncement by the Grand 
Master for he died, on September 3, shortly before the Com- 
munication of September 29. In his place M. W. Bro. His 
Excellencv Lieutenant- General Sir Charles Gairdner. K.C.- 
M.G., K.C.V.O.. K.B.E. (Civ), C.B., C.B.E. (Mil.). K.SU.,

stalled. The newlv installed Grand Master also served 
from 1955 to 1957.

The old and the new both held the forefront during the 
year. Five Lodges celebrated their centennials while at the 
same time there was considerable interest in the construction 
of new Temples. Two new Lodges also were under dispen- 
sation' and subsequently warranted.

The Committee on Territorial Jurisdiction brought in a 
well-ctansidered report. They started the general provision 
in the Wisconsin Masonic Code that the territorial jurisdiction 
of a lodge in Wisconsin includes all Wisconsin territory nearer 
to it than any other Wisconsin lodge; then listed the excep- 
tions, which are many; and finally showed the factors, also 
numerous, which exist today which tend to diminish the value 
and necessity of retaining such jurisdictional lines. While 
admitting some disadvantages the committee recommended 
that state- wide concurrent jurisdieion be permitted for a 
trial period. After much discussion the resolution was not 
adopted. 

A Committee was appointed to report back, as soon as 
possible, on a proposal to lower the age to eighteen 
for the acceptance of applicants for initiation.

Eight Special Communications of the Grand Lodge were 
convened for such purposes as laying cornerstones and con- 
stituting Lodges. Three of the cornerstones laid were for 
non-Masonic buildings. However, the outstanding event 
was the Special Communication on July 4 "atop Independ- 
ence Rock, for the purpose of holding commemorative ob- 
servance of the 100th anniversary of the first Masonic meet- 
ing held at this place on July 4, 1862." 

The Grand Historian explained the significance of the 
spot in history and geology. One hundred years ago In- 
dependence Rock was a well-known way station on the Old 
Oregon Trail where emigrants stopped to refresh them- 
selves before continuing their journey westward. The huge 
granite mass not only provided a landmark but also a place 
where a traveller could find shelter of a sort and fresh 
water. Here on July 4, 1862, Bro. Asa L. Brown, .with a 
group of some twenty brethren, opened the communication 
of Independence Lodge No. 1. The Grand Historian save 
appropriate extracts from several early travellers' aocounta

ful record of Freemasonry in Wyoming. 

The fee for Special Dispensations is So. 00 unless the 
dispensation is to attend church. Permission to install of-

levy.

GRAND MASTER'S BANQUET 

Royal York Hotel, Toronto, 

Ontario, July 17, 1963 

MW. Bro. Harry L Martyn: M.W. Grand Master and 
Brethren: Now that the Grand Master is arriving very close 
to the end of his term, I want to thank him for the oppor- 
tunity of handing to me probably the last assignment he is 
going to give me, and probably one (of the most pleasant 
that he has given me during his term, that of introducing 
our guest to this wonderful Masonic audience tonight. 

Brethren, on the 27th of December last year, I was priv- 
ileged to visit the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, and one 
of the most interesting things, among others, that I saw 
there was when a Mason was called to the floor of Grand 
Dodge by his Grand Master; he was supported on his left by 
his son, and on his right by his grandson. Then the Grand 
Master proceeded to present that Mason with his 50-year 
medal as a member of the Masonic Order. Brethren, the man 
in the middle was our speaker tonight. 

And so, as you know and I know, in some of the words 
of Masonry that have thrilled us on many occasions where 
we ourselves, our children, our children's children welcome 
the return of Masonic events and occasions, we are priv- 
ileged tonight as Maskxns in this Grand Lodge, along with 
our visitors, to welcome the return of a Masonic experience 
that was ours on twto other occasions. 

Our speaker, my brethren, MW. Bro. Boy, is Canadian 
born. He received the light of Masonry in a Canadian Lodge 
and was educated in the schools of two of our Canadian 
Provinces and later at the Theological Institute in Newton- 
ville, Massachusetts. 

Then, my brethren, followed a most interesting career 
in the Ministry, with pastoral charges first at Digby, then 
back acrtoss into one of the American States, later even to 
the City of London, Ontario, finally back to Brockton, Mas- 
sachusetts, and for 25 years a pastoral charge in the City 
of Worcester, Massachusetts, followed by retirement. 

During this period and always serving the community in 
which he lives, Masonry has created a great part in his life 
and he has contributed richly to the work of Masonry where- 
ever he resided. 



APPENDIX "B" 2 

Our speaker was the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge 
of Massachusetts from December, 1951, to December, 1953. 
He has served The Grand Masters' Conference at Washing- 
ton, succeeding M.W. Bro. Karl Mohr as the Executive Sec- 
retary in 1955, a position that he held until the year 1958. 
But most intimately associated, so far as I am concerned, 
was the service that he has given Masonry as a member of 
the Commission for Masonic Information on Recognition in 
connection with our Grand Masters' Conference. 

Brethren, M.W. Bro. Roy is still the Executive Secretary 
of that Commission in Washington and they are all delighted, 
and they are watching him very closely- Each year they 
have an awful battle with him to make sure that he will 
continue in the position. 

I know, brethren, that you have a inspirational message 
coming tlo> you when the speaker takes over at this rostrum. 
I know of no other man who has a wider Masonic experience, 
no man who has a greater ability to light the spark among 
the Masons that he has been privileged to address from one 
length of the continent to the other and. Grand Master and 
Brethren, I present to you now M.W. Bro. Thomas S. Roy. 
(Applause) . 

M.W. BRO. THOMAS S ROY: M.W. Grand Master. Dis- 
tinguished Guests, Brethren and their guests of the Grand 
Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario: 

Thank you, M.W. Bro. Martyn. for your very kind and 
all too generous introduction. It embarrasses me greatly to 
have to get up and attempt to talk after an introduction such 
as that. But I am grateful beyond words for the great hon- 
our of being invited to come here and speak at your Annual 
Banquet, the third time that this honour has dome to me. and 
for the high privilege that comes to so few men of addres- 
sing one of the finest Masonic audiences in the world. 

It mav be that I shall be told that I am taking in too 
much territory when I say that it is one of the finest Masonic 
audiences in the wnrM. Van may have heard of the group of 
tourists who were climbing Mount Vesuvius to look at the 
crater, among whom was an Englishman and an American 
among others. As they gazed into the awesome depths of the 
crater the American in characteristic fashion said, "Say, 
doesn't that beat hell" (Laughter) The Englishman locked 
at him in surprise and said, "Mv word, you Yankees have 
been everywhere, haven't you?" ("Laughter) Well. T have not 
been everywhere, but I have addressed many audiences — 
Mastonic audiences — here and there in many parts of the 
world, and certainly none finer than this one- 



3 APPENDIX ( <B" 

I am particularly happy to be back again as a guest in 
your Grand Lodge because ilt brings me a re-association with 
yiour Grand Master. Henry Collins and I were reminiscing 
today and we decided that it was 20 years ago when I first 
visited this Grand Lodge — I was Deputy Grand Master in 
Massachusetts then and was representing our Grand Master. 
We came to know one another then and I have ctome fre- 
quently since then, and always with increasing joy. 

As I say, I am particularly happy because it brings me 
a re-association with your Grand Master. I congratulate him 
and you on his able and inspiring administration as Grand 
Master. Our paths have crossed here and there during the 
last two or three years, and for me it has always been^ a 
pleasant and stimulating experience. He is a man lof judicial 
temperament, I suppose we can say, both by instinct and 
training and practise, but when he called me up some months 
ago and asked me to take this assignment, that was the only 
rash thing, injudicial thing, that I have ever kntown him to 
do. (Laughter) Rash, you see, because I am always uneasy as 
to how an address will come out — I can never be sure. 

My good friend, Wallace Kent, Grand Master of Mich- 
igan asked me one time before I was to make an address if 
I still got butterflies? I said "No, the butterflies left when 
the eagles took over." (Laughter) So things don't get any 
better, the farther you go why the harder it gets. 

Sometimes there comes an experience that compounds 
your uncertainties. One summer I had arranged for the sup- 
plies while I was away on vacation- The last one was my 
good friend and great preacher, Quay Rosselle. When we got 
together after vacation I asked him how he enjoyed preach- 
ing in my church during vacation? He said that he had had 
a very unusual experience. The first man he met when he 
got to the church was the sexton who asked him right off if 
he could preach as well as the supplies that had been there 
during the summer? While my friend Quay was fumbling 
fkxr an answer to the embarrassing question, the sexton kept 
on talking and said, "I just want you to know that we have 
had wonderful preaching ever since the Pastor left." (Laugh- 
ter) Our sextons are wonderful. There was that one in one 
of the College Chapels in Cambridge University, England. 
A friend he had known years before was congratulating him 
on his long years of service as the sexton there and he said, 
"Yes, I've been here a long time; as a matter of fact I've 
heard every sermon preached in this chapel for fifty years, 
and thank God I'm a Christian still." (Laughter) 

As a preacher I am geared to a seven day cycle, so that 
I am a bit off balance in the middle of the week, maybe not 
entirely off balance but a little bit off schedule at least- 



APPENDIX "B"' 4 

You may have heard of the saintly lady who lived alone, 
and, wanting company, decided to buy a parrot. She bought 
the parrot but did not know that the parrot had been trained 
to talk by sailors on shipboard, and had a lurid 
vocabulary of profanity. Because she liked the parrot she 
could stand the language during the week, but dome Sunday 
she would put a blanket over the cage so that the parrot 
would be quiet in the dark on a Sunday. On a certain Monday 
mjorning she removed the blanket and was moving about pay- 
ing no attention to the parrot's language when the doorbell 
rang. She opened the dioor and the minister was there- She 
quickly put the blanket over the cage again, only to have 
the minister hear the parrot say, "This has been a damn 
short week." (Laughter) 

What you see in life depends upon where you stand, or 
what you bring to the point of vision, namely, your point 
of view or your experience. There is a story to the effect that 
the great English poet and mystic William Blake was stand- 
ing on the seashore one morning at sunrise. He turned to a 
shop-keeper alongside him and asked him what he saw when 
he saw the sun rise? The shop-keeper replied that he saw a 
great big round golden guinea. In the embarrassed silence 
that followed, the shop-keeper said, "Well then, sir, what do 
you see?" And Blake said "I see an innumerable company 
of angels crying 'holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, the 
whole earth is filled with the glory of God!" What made the 
difference? That which each man brought to the point of 
vision. 

I knew a man who was a lumberman. If he came upon 
a stand of timber he would estimate the height and diameter 
of the trees, that they would produce so many logs that would 
scale twelve to the thousand and would in turn produce so 
many thousands of feet of lumber; and at the market-price 
would be worth a certain amount of money. Joyce Kilmer 
would look at the same trees and say, "I think that I shall 
never see a poem lovely as a tree; a tree that looks at God 
all day, and lifts her leafy arms to pray. Poems are made 
bv fools like me, but only God can make a tree." What made 
the difference? That which each brought to the point of vis- 
ion- 

Freemasonrv creates a point of view, or gives us an 
angle of vision, or a scale of observation that enables us to 
see things in a way otherwise impossible. The great artist, 
Turner, was painting a landscape one day. A lady watched 
him, looking- at the scene, and then at the painting. Finally 
sho said, "Mr. Turner. I don't see what you do." He said, 
"No, don't you wish you could?" There was something that 
he had within him that saw glory in the landscape that he 



. 5 APPENDIX "B" 

was able to transmit to his painting that she could not see. 
That same Turner would not let a visitor go from the street 
right into the gallery where his paintings were exhibited. 
They first had to spend some time in a darkened room, for 
he said that people could not see his paintings with the glare 
of the street in their eyes. Freemasonry takes out of our 
eyes the glare of self-seeking, and enables us to see things 
through the eyes of brotherhood. I have been a Mason for 
almost fifty-two years. I want you to think of some of the 
things that I have learned as I have looked at life through 
the eyes of a Mason. Fifty- two years may seem a long time 
to you- As far as a minister is concerned relativity has only 
one meaning, that is, time is never so short as when he'a 
talking, and never so long as when he's listening, So I have a 
good deal of sympathy for those who have to listen. 

The exact minute when I started towards the door that 
would open for me into Freemasonry I should have learned 
one of life's greatest lessons. Up to that moment I thought 
of myself as a completely independent individual. I felt that 
I could make my way in the world without any help from 
any person. T was on my own, and proud of it. I had been 
supporting myself since 1 was sixteen years of age. Then I 
suddenly discovered that in Freemasonry I was not going 
any place on my own. My boasted, vaunted, independence of 
mine was torn to shreds as I found a very much needed hand 
under my arm, and found a guidance without which I would 
have been completely lost. 

My first experience in Freemasonry symbolized for me 
the universal principle of dependence. All over this continent 
there are men referred to as self-made men. Some of you 
have some such men in your community as I have in my 
community. The probability is that they had no money when 
they started but have become unbelievably sxiceessful and 
enormously wealthy, and 1 yovi sav that they did it all by 
themselves- This, of course is ridiculous. 

What are the factors that make for wealth? In the po- 
litical economy that I studied long ago they are land, labour 
and capital. Land is not just the earth. It is all of the phy- 
sical resources of this planet placed at our disposal; land is 
the fertility of the soil, the wealth of minerals in the ground, 
the fish in the sea, the air that we breathe. Your self-made 
man used some of these things to produce his wealth, but 
he created none of them. 

The second factor is labour. But labour is not just the 
men who work with their hands, or the energy expended on 
production. Labour is society; it's all of us. It's this particu- 
lar group over here who produce what your self-made man 
has to sell; and 1 it is this other group over here who buy 



APPENDIX "B" 6 

what your self-made man has to sell. Without them he can- 
not succeed. But he did not create this labour. 

The third factor, capital, is not just money. It is the 
brains and the personality with which a man is born- It is 
the potential executive ability that he has developed. With- 
out them there can be no wealth, but your self-made man did 
not create this capital all by himself. Take away from this 
self-made man all of those things that are factors in the 
production of his wealth, but which he had no hand in creat- 
ing, and what have you left ? All you have got left is a blith- 
ering idiot standing on air. Not an independent man, cer- 
tainly; but a man so dependent that, without the things upon 
which he has had to depend, no success would have been 
possible. 

Freemasonry makes a great contribution to us, and to 
the world in its dramatization of this fundamental principle 
of our dependence. For no man is able to live a constructive 
life until he realizes his debt to others. There is an interest- 
ing story in the book that we call the Great Light in Free- 
masonry that is appropriate at this point. King David was 
beleaguered in the cave of Adullam by the Philistines. From 
the mouth of the cave he could look across the valley to the 
town of Bethlehem where he was born, now occupied by the 
Philistines. As he looked, a strange longing came over him 
and he said, "0 that someone would .give me to drink of the 
water of the well that is by the gate in Bethlehem." Three 
mighty men standing there heard him, broke through the 
host of the Philistines, got the waiter and brought it to him. 

David took the gourd ;of water eagerly- and lifted it to 
his lips to satisfy his longing- It must have been at this point 
that his eyes fell upon those three mighty men, their faces 
streaked with sweat and blood, their clothes torn from the 
struggle with the Philistines. Th^n he said. "I can't drink it, 
for it is the blood of the men who went in jeopardy of their 
lives." And he poured it out as a libation, as a drink-offering 
unto the Lord. For one brief moment at least in his life David 
was a completely civilized man. For the hall-mark of the 
civilized man is the ability to. see that which he uses in terms 
of human cost. 

This life of yours that you take for granted and use in 
nonchalant fashion; this education that has greatened your 
ability and enriched your life; this liberty that makes pos- 
sible the activities in which you engapre; this religion that 
gives you faith and hope for time and eternity. yfoKl did not 
create it all by yourself. They are the work, sometimes the 
sweat and blood and tears, and sometimes the sacrifice of 
those who went in jeopardy of their lives. Nor should thev 
be used just to satisfy a vagrant longing, or some selfish 



7 APPENDIX "B" 

interest, but in the interest of building a world in which all 
men shall have a chance to find fulfillment of life. 

The second very important thing that I have learned in 
Freemasonry is the importance of clinging to reality in life. 
We seem to have an inborn aversion to facing life realistic- 
ally- I think sometimes in my own State, where we legalize 
gambling lof a sort, then appoint a Crime Commission to see 
what they can do to get rid of the results of this gambling, 
that is, it's trying to empty a pan from the bottom and pour- 
ing water into the top as fast as it's running out of the 
bottom. I think, also, as I hear sometimes a man on the 
radio, as I have, pleading with people 'will you please drive 
carefully when you are out on the road' and then urging 
them to use his product 'that he is advertising which would 
make it absolutely impossible for them to drive carefully on 
the road- 

I think of it sometimes in my own particular realm. I'm 
interested in church union and it would be amusing if it were 
not so tragic, the ecumenically-minded men pleading for 
church union. But what of the church union we have today, 
and then insisting on a theology that would make church 
union impossible? There will be nlo united church until we 
get a theology for a united church. That's one of the hard 
things to do, to change the theology that we have sufficiently 
to get a united church. 

Freemasonry demonstrates that it is realistic when it 
places in our hands the working tools off the different de- 
grees — the working tools, as we say, of our profession. By 
this act it says that just as it is true that you cannot build 
a cathedral without the appropriate working tools, so is it 
true that you cannot build a life without appropriate work- 
ing tools, that is, without fulfilling the conditions that make 
for the building of a life. There is no use wishing for ends 
if we are not ready to will the means to achieve those ends. 

Our difficulty today is that we can dream of all these 
great things that we want to happen but we are not ready 
to fulfil the conditions that will make it possible. 

It is very difficult for me to believe that Russia and 
the United States have brains enough to put a man into 
space, calculate his orbit and keep him in it, arrange for 
his return and bring him back within a few seconds of the 
calculated time, but have not the brains to work out an in- 
ternational agreement that will assure peace and security for 
the world. Therefore, we are compelled to conclude that we 
do not have the character power equal to the normal de- 
mands of the world in which we live. That is, we do not have 
the working tools of character so desperately needed. 



APPENDIX "B* 8 

The characteristics of some of the working tools suggest 
one of our weaknesses- When you are dealing with the 
twenty-four inch gauge the square, the level and the plumb 
you are dealing with absolutes. They symbolize the fact that 
we must come to terms with absolutes if we would face 
reality in life. 

But our break with reality today is nowhere more ob- 
vious than in our failure to acknowledge absolutes in the 
development of the individual, and in the inter-relationship of 
men. We acknowledge the absolute in the physical universe, 
in the movement of the planets and the pull of the tides. We 
have not acted as though we believe that they rule just as in- 
fallibly in the development of character and the inter-rela- 
tionships of men. Granted that such absolutes or laws have 
not been formulated, as. for example the law of gravitation, 
or the law of thermo-dynamics. This does not make them any 
less credible, nor does the fact that we do not understand 
completely their operation make them any the less inexorable. 

We are being told that the only authority laws have to- 
day is that with which we invest them. They are not abso- 
lute but relative. They were valid for yesterday, but not nec- 
essarily for today; true for you, but not necessarily for me; 
relevant to that situation, but not necessarily to this par- 
ticular situation. 

So we argue ourselves into a position that can only be 
characterized as selective anarchy, in which all moral values 
are nullified or neutralized through our refusal to acknowl- 
edge any standards as having inherent validity or absolute 
authority- We are trading very recklessly with the realities 
of life when we do not accept the fact that no enduring 
structure can be built, whether it is a cathedral or a human 
life, without obedience to the absolutes symbolized in the 
working tools of our profession. I have learned nothing from 
Freemasonry or from life more important than this. 

In the third place — and you'll be glad that I'm follow- 
ing the routine of a minister tonight and just have three 
points and this is the third — the third most important 
thing that I have learned in Freemasonry is the fact of obli- 
gation in life. I am bringing this subject up in spite of the 
fact that I know that what we would like to know is how to 
get rid of obligations. A couple came to my home to get mar- 
ried. The man was older than usual. T asked him the u~mal 
question: "Wilt thou have this woman to thy wedded wife and 
live together in God's ordinance in the holy estate of matri- 
mony, and so on". I looked up from my book expecting the 
usual reply. He looked me straight in the eye and said: "In 
as far as possible." (Lausrhter) I told him that it wasn't 
g»od enough. It must be Yes or No. I will or I won't. He 



9 APPENDIX "B" 

appropriately replied and we went on with the wedding. 
Afterwards I discovered this was has fourth attempt and 
possibly experience had taught him reasonable caution. 
(Laughter). We are constantly looking for some way to 
qualify our obligations, but Freemasonry teaches us that 
there must be no qualification or equivocation, reservation or 
evasion. 

I learned at the centre of the Lodge that at the centre 
of life there is obligation. But the nerve centre of obligation 
is responsibility. Obligation is predicated upon a sense _ of 
responsibility. From Adam's day until ours, men have tried 
to evade responsibility in one way or another. For example, 
Adam tried it, you remember, when he was asked whether or 
not he had eaten the forbidden fruit said, "the woman thou 
gavest me she tempted me, and I did eat" — started a 
trend then, didn't he? And it's been popular ever since. 
(Laughter). But did you notice he wasn't really blaming the 
woman, he was blaming God — I didn't ask for her, you gave 
her to me, and now look at the mess she's gotten me in! 
(Laughter). For centuries men blamed fate, or the stars for 
their delinquencies and misfortunes. 

Shakespeare expressed it admirably in the words of one 
of the characters in King Lear who said: "This is the excel- 
lent foppery of the world, that when we are sick in fortune, 
often the surfeit of our own behaviour, we make guilty of our 
disasters the sun, the moon, and the stars; as if we were vil- 
lians by necessity, fools bv heavenly compulsion, knaves and 
thieves by spherical predominance, drunkards and liars by 
an enforced obedience of planetary inf'uence" But the same 
writer answers this in the words of Cassdus in Julius Caesar: 
"The fault, dear Brutus is not in our stars but in our- 
selves that we are underlings." 

We have our own way of evading responsibility today. I 
am not sure whether we are becoming compassionate or can- 
fused, whether we are more sensitive or just plain soft, 
whether we are dealing in mercy or in mush when we tell 
men in these days that they are not bad, they are just sick. 
Freemasonry teaches nothing more emphatically than die 
imperative obligation entailing a sense more than an engage- 
ment intowhidh we enter with our brethren in Freemasoniry. 
It symbolizes the fact that every relationship into which we 
enter forces uoon us some obligation. Our relationship with 
Freemasonry brings to us a great privilege. But every privil- 
ege in life lavs upon us a corresponding obligation, just as 
every cherished right, political, religious, social, carries with 
it a corresponding duty. 

Our Masonic obligation, to put it generally and figura- 
tively, demands that our lives be the pledge of our fidelity. 



APPENDIX "B" 10 

Let us not forget that in the figurative language we use 
there are no broken obligations without penalties. There is 
nothing strange about this. I venture the assertion — in the 
presence of all the legal talent that there is here tonight — 
there isn't a law on any statute book of any country in the 
world that doesn't have some penalty attached to its viola- 
tion. 

Go back to 1914 when the treaty obligation of Germany 
to respect the neutrality of Belgium was denounced as a scrap 
of paper- The whole world suffered the penalty of that broken 
obligation. World War II was the penalty of Hitler's broken 
obligations. In every case the heartbreak has been the pen- 
alty of a broken obligation. The person who breaks the ob- 
ligation may not suffer the penalty, but some one pays the 
penalty. Think of all the lives that were lost and the property 
that was lost in World War I and World War II, the latter 
because of the broken obligations of Hitler! 

I have, as a minister of course, been brought into touch 
with difficulties in life where I've seen many tragic situa- 
tions', many heartbreak situations, and I'm here to assert to- 
night that, apart from families where there was a death in 
the family, every heartbreak has been the penalty of a 
broken obligation. The person who broke the obligation may 
not suffer the penalty, but somebody pays the penalty. Be- 
cause of its repetition it would seem that there is no prin- 
ciple that Freemasonry would drive more forcibly into the 
consciousness of the candidate than this, that there are no 
broken obligations without penalties. 

These and other things that I have learned in Freemas- 
onry compel the conclusion that we have a message for the 
world. It is our message to the world that, because of our 
dependence, we must leam to live together if we are going 
to be able to live at all, recognizing the inherent worth of all 
men and the ability of every race to bring enrichment to the 
Hfe of all races. 

It is our message to the world that there is immutable 
law, grounded in the nature of the universe and the inherent 
needs of man, and we must obey it if we would find fulfill- 
ment of life. It is cur message to the world that at the 
centre of life there is obligation from which neither man nor 
nation can escape, and in obedience to which each shall serve 
the interests of all and all shall serve the interests of ^ach' 
May we communicate this to the world with something of 
the passion of the poet and painter William Blake when he 
wrote the lines: 

"Bring me my bow of burning gold. 
Bring me my arrows of desire; 



11 APPENDIX "B" 

Bring me my sword, clouds unfold! 
Bring me my chariot of fire- 

I shall not cease from mental fight, 
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand, 
Till we have built Jerusalem 
In all this fair and pleasant land. 

Thank you, brethren, you are wonderful listeners. (Con- 
tinued applause) 

DEPUTY GRAND MASTER, J. A. IRVINE: M.W. Grand 
Master; Distinguished Guests, and my other Brethren: I find 
a great penalty placed upon me at the moment. If there's any- 
one here who would now like to trade places with me, let 
him now stand up. 

It's a wonderful privilege to have the opportunity of say- 
ing a few words of thanks here tonight, but after listening 
to such an address by such an illustrious personality, I would 
like to assure you that I don't feel exactly, shall we say, 
'unnervous' ? 

But, brethren, I would like to say this, that we, in Can- 
ada here, do feel that we own a portion of the speaker, and 
if I may be local for just a moment, we of the London Dis- 
trict feel that we do own a part of the M.W. Speaker that we 
have heard here tonight. Formerly he was a member of The 
Tuscan Lodge, No- 196, in London. This lodge has produced 
many outstanding Masons and I am not sure but that some 
of the original stones might not have been laid by this par- 
ticular person. 

If I may be excused a moment, brethren, to mention 
something about the great friendship that exists between 
the people of this country and the people of the United 
States, so many of whom are visiting us at this Grand Lodge 
Communication, we do a great deal in the way of business 
with them in the way of international trade. There's only one 
thing that I regret, and that is, the year in which we ex- 
ported M.W. Bro. Roy to the United States. I'm afraid that 
the trade balance between these two countries is much in 
favour of the United States. (Laughter) 

Brethren, anything that I might have to say in comment- 
ing on the beautiful message that we have received here to- 
night. I know would just detract from this message, and I'm 
going to refrain from doing so because I want the words that 
have been eriven to you to remain with you that you might 
take them home, and that you might think about them — as 
I would like to do myself, and I'm sure that we'll all profit 
greatly. 



APPENDIX "B" 12 

To have the privilege of saying a word of thanks to this 
speaker tonight, is too much for one person. I would like 
each and every person in this room to join with me. I would 
like you to stand, if you will, each and every one of you, 
and on behalf of you and I know I speak the sentiments of 
everyone in this room, we would like to say, "Thank you, 
M.W- Bro. Roy; we hope that you will come back again and 
we hope that it won*t be long. Thank you, brethren.

Bro- E. H. Rivers, Secretary, called the roll. The Gcxnferenee 
then opened its deliberations with an invocation by M.W.

The President extended a most cordial welcome to all 
members as President of the Conference and as Grand Mas- 
ter of our host jurisdiction. He extended an invitation to all 
to a formal dinner to be tendered by the Grand Lodge of 
Manitoba that evening. 

On Thursday afternoon, R.W. Bro. J. A. Irvine (Ontario) 
presented a paper on the following topic: 



3 APPENDIX "C" 

"How can we improve the training of Lodge Officers 
and make them more conscious of their duties and respons- 
ibilities." 

Bro. B. R. Taylor (Newfoundland) led the discussion on 
this paper. 

The afternoon session was followed by a formal dinner 
as guests of M.W- Bro. S. H. Dayton, Grand Master, and the 
Grand Lodge of Manitoba. Rev- Bro. Ven. Archdeacon F. J. 
Boyd, Grand Chaplain of Manitoba, was the guest speaker. 

On Friday, February 15, the following papers were pre- 
sented and discussed: 

(a) Report of the Committee on Fraternal Relations, 
prepared by M.W. Bro. R. V- Harris (Nova Scotia) 
and read, in his absence, by R.W. Bro. E. H. Rivers 
(Alberta). 

(b) "What influence does membership in the so-called 
higher degrees of Freemasonry have on one's mem- 
bership in and duties to our Craft Lodges?" — pre- 
sented by R.W- Bro. S. L Hodge (Quebec). The dis- 
cussion was led by M.W. Bro. W. L. McPhee (Al- 
berta). 

(a) "Loss of membership by demit and suspension," pre- 
sented by R.W. Bro. T. M- Spencer (Saskatchewan). 
The discussion on this paper was led by M.W. Bro. 
G. S. Walker (Nova Scotia).

side the Craft" presented by M.W. Bro. G. E. Full 
(Prince Edward Island). The discussion on this paper 
was led by MW. Bro. C. D. Dickison (New Bruns- 
wick). 

On Friday evening, February 15, the thirty-fifth meet- 
ing of the Canadian Masonic Research Association was held 
in the Masondc Temple, Winnipeg, when two very excellent 
papers were presented: 

(a) The Founding Fathers of the Grand Lodge of Man- 
itoba, by M.W. Bro. Wm- Douglas, (Manitoba). 

(b) The story of Kinistino Lodge, No. 1, Saskatchewan, 
by M.W. Bro. Richmond Mayson (Saskatchewan). 

On Saturday morning, February 16, the following paper 
was presented by M.W. Bro. H- B. Donnelly (Manitoba) : 



APPENDIX "C" 4 

A short history of the Craft based on provable facts. A 
discussion on this paper was led by R.W. Bro. George Phillips 
(Newfoundland, E.C.) 

At the conclusion of the discussion, the President called 
upon M.W. Bro- R. W. Treleaven (Ontario) to present a reso- 
lution prepared by a special committee previously appointed 
by the Conference to consider a request from the Canadian 
Broadcasting Corporation for collaboration in televising the 
story of Freemasonry. 

The resolution was as follows: 

"Resolved that, in the opinion of this Conference of 
Grand and District Grand Lodges of Canada, a Canadian 
Broadcasting Corporation Television programme on the ori- 
gin and history of Canadian Freemasonry is neither advisable 
nor desirable and we are opposed to any such telecast. 

"If, however, notwithstanding this opinion, the C.B.C. is 
determined to proceed with such a programme, it should only 
be carried out in consultation and collaboration with a Com- 
mittee of this Conference, and we appoint, for such pur- 
poses, Bros. C. M. Pitts, Ottawa; E. H. Rivers, Calgary; H. F. 
Sipprell, Halifax; R. W. Treleaven, Hamilton; and S. C. Heck- 
bert, Vermillion." 

The resolution was carried unanimously. 

At noon on Saturday, February 16, the Conference was 
closed with prayer after it was unanimously decided to hold 
the Ninth Biennial Conference in Montreal in February, 
1965, immediately preceding the Conferences of Grand Mas- 
ters and Grand Secretaries of North America in 1965, the 
dates to be set by the Executive Committee.
